Garrigus Nearly Aces Par-4 17th Hole at WMPO

Golf can be a funny game sometimes, just ask Robert Garrigus. 


The PGA Tour veteran has been playing golf for most of his 40 years on this planet, but what nearly happened on Friday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Playing the drivable 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass, Garrigus somehow took dead and hit it target.


Garrigus easily tapped in his eagle en route to a 2-under par 69. had more on the near-ace on the par-4.

As Ollie Schniederjans proved on Thursday at TPC Scottsdale, putting on the par-4 17th hole can be a little tricky.

So Robert Garrigus left nothing to chance during Round 2, taking dead aim at the hole. And that’s not hyperbole.

Garrigus signed for a second-round 69 on Friday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, thanks in large part to this eagle on 17, which would’ve been a hole-in-one on a par 4 had he gotten any help at all from the golf gods.

Despite giving one back on 18, Garrigus stayed on the right side of the cut line. So the good news is, he’ll get two more tries this weekend at getting one to drop.
