During the second day of the tournament at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California

Zalatoris rolled into a lucky hole-in-one after his tee shot with a 7-iron fell on the left edge of the green at the 14th hole, a 184-yard par-3 hole.

When Zalatoris checked the hole-in-one, Zalatoris threw the club into the sky and hugged his caddie, sharing joy. Zalatoris, who returned to the club this season after rehabilitation from back surgery in April last year, received the GV80, a Genesis SUV, and Joel Stock, his caddie, received the GV70, a Genesis electric SUV, respectively.

This is Zalatoris’ 10th hole-in-one. The most famous hole-in-one Zalatoris caught was a hole-in-one caught at No. 7 during the 2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot.

After finishing the second round with a 1-under 70, Zalatoris said, “I thought I was 180 yards away and hit the center of the green, which led to good luck,” adding, “Two cars are a pleasant bonus.” Zalatoris is tied for sixth with a combined 6-under 136.
