“You get the right distance, the right club, hit a good shot and that’s the ingredients you need to make a hole in one,” Jimenez said. “My irons, they are like darts.”



Elsewhere, 20,956 spectators saw ‘Beefy’ Johnston’s ace net the 26-year-old a BMW M4 at the 10th, while Chris Wood later won a BMW i8 with his hole-in-one at the 14th.
