The first major highlight of the day belonged to 27-year old South African Dylan Frittelli who scored a hole in one at the eighth hole.

"I would hope it would be lengthened, personally, to take away certain players being able to cut off a lot of the hole and require pretty much everyone to hit it around the same line", he said.
"What I did compared to that doesn't matter, " Nicklaus said through tears.
"I was just trying to hit a good shot", G.T. Nicklaus said.
But the teenager didn't have to fulfil the tradition of getting the beers in following his hole-in-one - because he's only 15 and not old enough to buy alcohol in the state of Georgia. To have that happen is unbelievable. The 78-year-old Nicklaus finished tied for fourth at 4-under par.
