WATCH: Chez Reavie just made the longest hole-in-one all season at the Tour Championship
Chez Reavie isn’t the longest hitter on the PGA Tour, but he made the longest ace of the 2018-2019 season on Friday at the Tour Championship.
Reavie began his day at even par, 10 shots off the lead. But he got off to a hot start at East Lake, making birdie at No. 1 and No. 2, then adding two more at 5 and 6 after a bogey at 4.
But those birdies were just the opener for Reavie’s main event: he stepped up to the 230-yard 9th hole and cranked a 3-hybrid that landed on the front edge and got very literally the perfect bounce forward. The rest, as you can see below, was history.
What made Reavie’s ace particularly memorable was its length. Up to this point, Nick Taylor owned the longest hole-in-one of the season, holing his tee shot from 221 yards at the par-3 13th at TPC San Antonio. But Reavie’s blew that out of the water by a full nine yards.
Better yet, the ace (and front-nine 30) moved Reavie inside the top 15 — and in line for a big payday.
