Geoff Ogilvy wins playoff with a hole-in-one, crowd goes berserk

Making a hole-in-one is always a special occasion, but making one to win a playoff is something else.

Geoff Ogilvy was playing an exhibition match at Goat Hill Park golf course in Oceanside, California over the weekend when he set the place alight with a stunning ace on the sudden-death playoff hole.

Ogilvy was teamed up with former tour player Chris Riley in an 18 hole charity match against Xander Schauffele and Dean Wilson where all players used persimmon woods.

The match was sent to extra holes after both teams were tied in regular time. But only one hole was required as Ogilvy slam-dunked his tee shot at the par-3 ninth hole. Ogilvy’s ninth career hole-in-one.

The hole-in-one at that moment was incredible, but we think it was topped by the insane reaction from the crowd afterwards who storm the green to take photos and go off their trolley.

Take a look.

Another look from another angle.

And here is Geoff arriving to the green with his shirt untucked, highlighting the informal nature of this event.

“I never liked playing golf in a T-shirt; I always wanted a collar,” Ogilvy said before the event. “But my shirt will be untucked. That’s the only way to play. I only tuck my shirt in when I have to.”
