Tom Watson’s hole in one on the 6th hole during the 2nd round of the 2011 British Open Championship today is bringing out a lot of tweets with the #holeinone hashtag.
Funny because the British Open had the least number of hole in ones of any of the four golf Majors, 6 at the time. Then, all of a sudden we see 2 in one tournament.
Earlier in the first round Dustin Johnson had a hole in one on the 16th hole.
The British Open has had the fewest hole in ones of all the Majors. But it has had some remarkable ones in its history. In the 1973 British Open Gene Sarazen at age 71 made a hole in one.
