What a day to play the seventh hole at Bay Hill.
In 40 years at Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club & Lodge, there have been only three aces on the seventh hole— two occurred Thursday.
Francesco Molinari recorded the first hole-in-one on the par-3 No. 7 and D.A. Points had the second during the first round of the 2019 Arnold Palmer Invitational.
The first ever hole-in-one on Bay Hill’s seventh hole belongs to Vaughn Taylor who recorded his ace with a six iron during the second round of the 2009 Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Here’s Points’ ace which happened Thursday during afternoon play.
Points was 2-under at the time of his hole-in-one.
Molinari finished Thursday 3-under 69 with his eagle on the seventh hole, four-straight birdies, one bogie and a double bogie on the fourth hole.
