More about Tony Jacklin's hole-in-one

Tony Jacklin holed his 7-iron shot on the par 3, 16th hole at Royal St George’s during his final round.

The British Masters was originally founded in 1946 as the Dunlop Masters. Dunlop's sponsorship ended in 1982.

Tony finished tied for 16th with a total score of +4.

While Jacklin's hole in one was the first to be televised live, his feat was 3 years after when, in 1962, Wilf Homenuik's hole in one was the first recorded on television (but not shown live).

We thank Julie Hanning for sharing with us the news about Homenuik's recorded hole in one, helping us add further information to this topic.
