Pulling a five-iron from his bag, Wallace watched as his shot hit the green, took two hops and rolled straight into the cup triggering a massive roar that washed over Bellerive Country Club.

A smiling Wallace celebrated as he walked up the fairway then dug the ball out of the hole, kissed it and tossed it into the crowd.

The hole-in-one moved Wallace onto the first page of the leaderboard leaving him two-under on the day with two to play and five-under for the tournament.
