Holmes makes albatross history

No one had ever had a double eagle at Quail Hollow ... until Saturday. J.B. Holmes just pulled it off on the par-5 15th, which measures 566 yards. After a 344-yard drive, Holmes' 5-iron from 212 yards tracked right into the cup. The shot got him to 8 under, just three shots back of leader Pat Perez. Ironically, Holmes had never even eagled the hole in 14 previous tries: He'd made nine birdies and five pars.

Holmes then birdied the par-4 16th to get to 9 under.

The double eagle is the second on TOUR this year. Alex Cejka double eagled the par-5 10th in the opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on just his second shot of the tournament.
