Well, it turns out the shot was quite literally perfect.
MacIntyre’s ball did land short of the green but got an exceptional bounce before tracking perfectly into the cup for a hole-in-one.

He didn't love it, but he 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱.

Talk about a great surprise.
As someone who hits more below-average shots than pure ones, I can confirm that miss-hitting a shot but getting away with it is one of the finer feelings in golf.
MacIntyre is playing with fellow Scot Martin Laird this week in the team event. The duo carded a 6-under 66 in their opening round.
