Sebastian Söderberg makes stunning ace at US PGA Championship

Sebastian Söderberg continued his remarkable recent run by making his first DP World Tour hole-in-one on day two of the US PGA Championship.

The Swede earned his US PGA Championship debut by topping the Asian Swing Rankings with the help of finishing second, second and third in his last three starts.

It looked like he would have a week to forget at Valhalla Golf Club after bogeying six of his first eight holes but he recovered to post an opening 73 and followed it up with a 67 to sit at two under after 36 holes.

He was two over stood on the tee at the 169-yard par three eighth but hit a perfect eight iron to get back to level and create a moment he will never forget.

"I was six over through eight yesterday and it felt like it was going to be a short week but I just grinded and started missing in some better spots," he said.

"A hole-in-one today was quite helpful to get the momentum going.

"We were debating clubs a little bit but eventually committed that this is the club and hit a full draw.

"I hit it perfect and it pitched like a foot right of it and jumped in.

"I blacked out for a second probably, I haven't made too many but it's a great feeling."
