Amateur aces 16 in Phoenix pro-am
By Torleif Sorenson on 1/29/15

Dave Wood is an amateur golfer who participated in the Phoenix Open's pro-am on Wednesday — and bested everybody else, including the professionals, at the 16th hole. This is certainly a memory for a lifetime, but his wallet is going to be bruised, too.

Great shot, Dave. :)

Etiquette says he's supposed to buy everyone in the bar a beer. Now, does the "bar" include everyone packed into the 16th Hole bleachers?

An excellent question. Even if it was limited to his playing partners, their caddies, marshals, Tour staff, etc., that could get rather expensive.

When *you* made *your* ace, how many beverages did you have to buy?

I have heard it said that making an ace with someone else's clubs invalidates the feat. I know all my aces have been made with my own clubs. How about everyone else?

OUCH! We're talking about one great shot, but the knives are already out!

@Torleif: I only had to buy 3. It was Sunday morning and the bar/restaurant was filled the the church crowd for breakfast. We did get some strange looks ordering beer @ 9:00 am on a Sunday.

It's easy to ace a hole with *your* clubs. It's much more difficult to do it with your friend's clubs. Therefore, I think it counts double!

I think the rule is only in competition and only at your home club
