Si Woo Kim extended his lead at the Valero Texas Open on Friday in a big way.
With a hole-in-one.
Using a nine iron on the par-3 16th hole, Kim's shot from 167 yards away took a few hops and then buried itself in the cup.
It was his second career ace, with his last one coming four years ago. It's just the second ace on this course in this event, the last one happening in 2013.
Kim's hole-in-one is the 22nd on the PGA Tour this season.
