There have already been a couple of holes-in-one here at the St. Jude Classic presented by Smith & Nephew, but Steve Wheatcroft hit the shot of the week so far earlier this morning when he made a double eagle on the par-5 third hole.
Wheatcroft hit the shot using a hybrid club from 243 yards. At the time, it moved him from 2 over to 1 under for the week. He’s since give one of those strokes back with a bogey on the par-3 eighth, but the double eagle may help get to the weekend. Wheatcroft, who has missed six of his last seven cuts, is just inside the current cut line. -- Brian Wacker
