Piazza Slam Dunks 290-yard Hole-In-One

I've had the fortune of making a hole-in-one during my golfing career, and I've also driven numerous par-4's, but to do both on the same hole is flat out showing off.

Aventura, FLA – November 29, 2007 – Mike Piazza fared remarkably well during his recent visit to the The Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort & Club Soffer Course.

During a private Audemars Piguet golf outing on November 19, 2007, the all-star Major League Baseball player sank a hole-in-one on the par four 1st hole.

The spectacular shot was made on a hole that typically plays nearly 350 yards. On this particular day Piazza struck a tee shot that traveled just over 290 yards and flew right into the cup for a slam-dunk double-eagle hole-in-one.

Piazza appreciates the odds of his shot and though he’s been playing the sport since his youth, he says this was “pretty special.”
