Cink makes hole-in-one

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

PALM HARBOR, Fla. -- Stewart Cink hasn’t had much to smile about this week -- through two rounds he was 1 under and near the bottom of the leaderboard. Saturday, however, Cink made a hole-in-one on the 190-yard par-3 eighth. He hit 6-iron.

The ace was actually Cink’s second here at the Transitions Championship. He also had one on the eighth hole during the final round of the 2003 tournament. He’s the first player to record multiple holes-in-one here.

Cink has four career holes-in-one -- the other two came during the final round of the 1999 Bob Hope Classic on the 12th hole of the Palmer Course and in the final round of the 2000 Bridgestone Invitational on the 15th hole at Firestone.

It also marked the 15th ace on the PGA TOUR this season.

Cink’s excitement was short-lived, however. Two holes later he double-bogeyed the par-4 10th hole.
