Introducing the prize for a hole-in-one on the 16th this week.
A hole-in-one brings delight for any golfer but some aces mean just that little bit more than others…
There have been 102 editions of the French Open and once again we return to Le Golf National for the first time since the 2018 Ryder Cup.
There’s extra incentive for the field in Paris this week for the perfect shot on the 16th hole - namely the unbelievable prize on offer for the first player to make a hole-in-one during competition rounds at Le Golf National.
The prize this week? A magnificent BMW i8 Roadster.
History shows that aces on the par three 16th hole have been hard to find, with just one perfect shot since 2000 which was made by Robert-Jan Derksen at the 2008 event.
