James Morrison wins a BMW i8 with Wentworth ace

Powered by National Club Golfer

The Englishman followed in Chris Wood’s footsteps to make a hole in one on the par-3 14th hole during the final round of the BMW PGA Championship.

Morrison hit a 5-iron to the 177-yard uphill target and after bouncing twice it found the bottom of the cup. Eventual winner Wood managed the same feat at the last year’s tournament.

It landed Morrison the £100,000 coupe and sparked wild celebrations on the tee with playing partner Andy Sullivan who needs no second invitation to enjoy himself on the course.

Morrison found a ditch at the 13th and ran up a double-bogey six, but he staged the perfect response.

"Having walked from the ditch on the last making double-bogey to hitting the best shot I've hit all week, and hit it straight down the flag," he said.

"It's gone at it real speed. I gave my caddie a bit of an earful, I thought it gone over the green! But it went in and it's a great feeling.

"The crowd were amazing. It was one of those, where you were so far away, with the wind blowing, couldn't really tell. But I got the gist it had gone in, although someone said in the crowd it had not gone in. It was a bit hit and miss, but we were high-fiving, so it was lots of fun."

Rikard Karlberg also made and ace at the 2nd on Sunday while Scott Jamieson won himself a BMW M2 for being the first player to make a hole-in-one at the 10th.
