PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Former Oklahoma State Cowboy Viktor Hovland stayed in contention at The Players Championship on Monday morning with a shot to remember on the Par-3 8th hole at TPC Sawgrass.
Hovland, a Norway native who last played for OSU in 2019, hit his first shot on the 219-yard hole high and onto the green, watching it roll in for a hole-in-one.
He celebrated with his caddie and his playing partner Kevin Streelman — but perhaps no one matched the excitement of the announcer on the Norwegian broadcast of the tournament.
