Shawn Stefani jumped for joy amid wild celebrations after sinking a hole-in-one at the US Open.
The Texan watched in amazement as his shot went badly off course at the 246-yard par three 17th hole then bounced sideways, rolled 50 feet across the putting surface and fell in the cup.
He immediately leapt into the air, hugged his caddy and high-fived playing partner Kyle Stanley as the enormity of his feat sunk in.
It was the 43rd hole-in-one in US Open history, the first coming in 1907 and follows John Peterson’s success at the 13th at San Francisco’s Olympic Club last year.
It was just the second hole-in-one that Stefani has bagged, the first coming when he was 13 years old on his hometown course at Baytown.
It was also the first time anyone has hit a hole-in-one in five tournament visits to the Merion Golf Club in Philadelphia.
