Lyle aces Phoenix party hole: video

BURLY Victorian Jarrod Lyle really put the “P” in Party Hole with an ace at the hole they call the loudest in golf at the 2011 Phoenix Open yesterday.

Lyle sent the decibels through the roof at the coliseum styled 16th at the TPC Scottsdale.

Lyle, as you can see from the video below, was happier than any of the 20,000 spectators present when his eight iron landed on the fringe of the green, bounced twice and then rolled neatly into the hole.

Lyle thrust his arms in the air to cue wild celebrations amongst the well lubricated crowd.

“You can almost explain it like when they sing the national anthem in Australia before the Australian rules grand final,” Lyle said later.

“It was one of those amazing feelings that you can’t recreate. But that’s my first hole-in-one as a professional.

“Of all the holes to have a hole-in-one in the world, this is probably the best one that you can think of.”

The shot helped Lyle to a second round 67, nine strokes off the pace. With the final round still underway, Lyle was out of contention at 3 under.
