Former PGA Tour pro John Morgan makes an ace, swims to fetch his golf ball

Former PGA Tour player John Morgan was so pleased to make an ace he dived into a nearby pond to retrieve his golf ball from the green.

Morgan made the ace as part of a filmed contest worth 100,000 pounds. The only problem, however, was that Morgan wasn't part of the contest.
