Players Championship: Sungjae Im sinks hole-in-one on No. 13


Sungjae Im wasn’t playing around Friday on No. 13 at TPC Sawgrass.

Im used his 8-iron to record the second hole-in-one of the tournament on the 152-yard 13th hole during afternoon play. The ace sent 20-year-old from Korea’s score to 3-under for the second round, just above the projected cut line at the time of his hole-in-one. Im finished Thursday 1-over 73.

Im’s ace marks the first time since 2013 there has been more than one hole-in-one at The Players. Michael Thompson and Chris Stroud sank aces on the eighth and 13th holes respectively in 2013.

Ryan Moore recorded the first hole-in-one of this year’s Players Championship Thursday on the course’s No. 17 island hole.

Im’s hole-in-one is the 30th in Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass history and the 12th on No. 13.
