2008 Miguel Angel Jiménez holes in one with a 187 yard 4-iron on the par 3 5th hole at Wentworth, on his way to winning the BMW PGA Championship. The significance of the hole in one only became apparent when Jiménez tied Oliver Wilson on 277 after 72 holes, and went on to win a sudden-death playoff with a birdie at the second hole, making him the first - and so far only - winner of the BMW treble: the 2004 BMW Asian Open, the 2004 BMW International Open and the 2008 BMW PGA Championship.
1906 James RobbIn the 36 hole final of the Amateur Championship at Hoylake, James Robb and C.C. Lingen halved the par 4 6th hole ('Briars') during the second round in 9. In strong winds and rain, Lingen drove out of bounds and was twice in sand before reaching the green in six. Robb (right) also drove wildly and found bushes and hedges on his way to reaching the edge of the green in six. Both players then took three more to get down, each missing a short putt for the eight. Robb finally won the match by 4&3.
