Bradley Dredge made the first hole-in-one of his 20 year European Tour career at the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open to win a BMW X7.

The Welshman is a veteran of 475 appearances and chose one of the biggest stages of all to make his first ace, lighting up the Rolex Series as he holed a five iron from 200 yards on the 17th.

There were two holes-in-one on day one at the 15th at The Renaissance Club but they did not bring the spectacular prize that Dredge will be driving home - a BMW G07 X7 xDrive40i M Sport.

"It's been quite a few years coming," he said. "I've had ten holes-in-one but never in tournament play, it's nice to do it here.

"I got a very nice car by BMW so I'm pleased with that.

"The pin was in quite a friendly position, the wind is off the right slightly in. It was a comfortable five iron and I managed to hit a good shot. 

"I couldn't actually see it going in but I could tell from the crowd's reaction that it's gone in."

Dredge's achievement is all the more remarkable when you consider the odds he has had to overcome to hit a perfect shot.

History has shown that ones on par threes measuring between 198-208 yards have been hard to find.
