Serge Hogg of Baltimore, Md., recorded a hole-in-one on the par-3, 161-yard fifth hole at The Bridge. The ace is the second for the 36-year-old Hogg, who is playing in his first USGA championship. It was the 19th hole-in-one in U.S. Mid-Amateur history and the first at this year’s championship.
An interesting note when it comes to holes-in-one at the Mid-Am – in 1987, Don Bliss made two during the first round of stroke play at Brook Hollow Golf Club in Dallas. It is the only time in USGA championship history that someone has made two holes-in-one in the same round.
