Sport: Hovland was three shots under par after the first round and had the start of the second round postponed by a few hours due to an accident close to the facility in the morning hours.

Once he got going he delivered three pars before hitting the par four hole number four. From about 70 meters he got an eagle. The ball bounced once on the green before disappearing.

– What a circus of a golf shot, exclaimed Viaplay commentator Joakim Mikkelsen.

The 26-year-old has had a tough start to the season after he won the PGA playoff last year. Among other things, he has stood over several tournaments.

Ahead of this weekend’s tournament in Louisville, Kentucky, it became known that Hovland has resumed working with coach Joe Mayo.

Hovland finished second in last year’s edition of the PGA Championship. The winner of the year’s second major tournament takes home just over NOK 33 million.
