Chalmers ‘surprised’ to see his ace

NORTON, Mass. – Roughly 33 minutes after Brandt Snedeker aced the 16th hole Saturday, Greg Chalmers followed with another ace using a 9-iron. It was the third ace of Chalmers’ PGA TOUR career.

“Holes-in-one quite often are surprising, and that one surprised me because it didn’t look from where I was standing that it was far enough to go in,” said Chalmers, who is known more for his putting; he currently ranks tied for fifth on TOUR in Strokes Gained-Putting.

“I thought it was going to be four or five feet short. It was a surprise.”

Snedeker joked after his round that Chalmers’ ace prevented him from winning a skin there.

Replied Chalmers: “Well, I’m sure he’ll survive when he’s one shot behind on the lead.”

Chalmers’ previous aces came in the 2004 John Deere Classic and the 2009 Puerto Rico Open.

Chalmers shot a 6-under 65 on Saturday and is 5 under for the tournament. Snedeker is at 9 under, one stroke behind leader Bubba Watson.
