Garcia makes hole-in-one at Players' famed island-green 17th

The par-3 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass is famous for its island green, and the view from the tee intimidates even the world's best at motivating a golf club.

"It was a solid 52-degree (wedge) for me", said Garcia who played the final three holes in 3 under to shoot 1-over 73. "I hit some good shots, then I would lip-out the putt". Garcia is the second to achieve the feat in as many years following Willy Wilcox's previous ace on the par-three.

American McGirt and Canadian Hughes will take a one-shot lead into day two of golf's unofficial fifth major, with JB Holmes, Chez Reavie, Jon Rahm and Alex Noren (68) trailing in third at four under. "I turned a poor round into a decent round".

Because of all the extra attention following his breakthrough Masters triumph, Garcia said he "wasn't quite in the tournament" Thursday, which represented his first competitive round since Augusta. I don't know, it can do anything. Day, however, made three bogeys over his last four holes and had to settle for a 2-under score.

Garcia said it was nice to post an ace after getting off to a rocky beginning. It's been a busy week and at the beginning I wasn't really in the tournament.

In truth, before the hole-in-one stunner, Garcia was struggling in his first tournament back since winning The Masters a month ago - approaching the 17th he was three over par.
