This Amateur Golfer Didn’t Know He Sank A Hole-In-One On National TV...Until He Heard The Crowd
The look on his face is priceless.
Given the topography and distance involved in a golf shot from the tee, it’s understandable why a golfer, especially an amateur one, would lose track of the ball after hitting it.

Nonetheless, it’s a real shame he missed that hole-in-one.
