Arnold Palmer recorded his 20th career hole-in-one on Tuesday on the seventh hole of the Charger Course at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Fla.
What made this ace even more unique was Palmer's choice of clubs: He used a set of Callaway RAZR XF irons for the first time, and he hit a 5-iron on the fateful 163-yard par-3.
“It was into a cross-wind from the left," Palmer said in a release provide by Callaway, the equipment company Palmer has endorsed since 2000. "The ball landed 10 feet short and politely rolled up into the hole.”
Golf Magazine wrote about the Callaway RAZR XF in its November issue:
Supercharged RAZR XF irons are engineered for higher-handicappers who seek more distance and need help getting the ball in the air. The multi-material, 2-piece forged construction consists of a 1020 carbon steel body with a high strength Carpenter 455 steel face that’s designed to generate extra ball speed.
Yup, it's good to be the King.
