Jonathan Byrd Wins PGA Tournament With Hole-in-One on Playoff Hole In all the moments of clutch performances in professional sports, this one may rank near the top.

Jonathan Byrd, a relatively unknown golfer ranked 106th in the world, was in a three-man playoff on Sunday at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital Open in Las Vegas. It took four playoff holes to decide a winner, and it was decided in as dramatic a fashion as humanly possible.

How’d Byrd win? Watch the video to find out.

Byrd aced the par-3, 204-yard 17th hole with a perfect 6-iron, thereby beating Martin Laird and Cameron Percy (once Percy teed off and didn’t match the epic feat himself, of course).

It was Byrd’s fourth PGA victory, but it’s safe to assume he’ll never have a more memorable moment on the golf course.
