Will Wilcox for the win!!
Wilcox made the first ace of the 2016 Players Championship . That’s a big deal considering most of the balls go into the water surrounding the challenging island 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass. Even with what looks like an awkward swing, Wilcox smashed the ball and kills that ace like a pro, which he is.
He’s the first to do so since 2002, which Miguel Jimenez made.

Only 7 players have made ace’s at the 17th hole and now Wilcox is added to that list. Not only that but because of this one lucky fan gets a year’s worth of mortgage payments courtesy of Quicken Loans!
Making history and making the fans happy doing so. Sounds like a solid round to me and Jimenez agrees!
Miguel Angel Jimenez just heard about @willwilcoxgolf‘s ace on No. 17.
