11-year-old makes ace in first-ever shot on Tiger Woods' new course

This was a day 11-year-old Taylor Crozier won't forget.

Through the South Texas section of the PGA of America, Crozier was one of two children who earned the right to play a hole with Tiger Woods on Wednesday at the grand opening of The Playground at Bluejack National, a 10-hole family-oriented short course at the private club near Houston. 

Crozier, who, in his official announcement, was billed as having a perfect school attendance record until Wednesday, christened the course on the 60-yard first hole. He stepped up, hit a very good tee shot that hit near the left side of the green. It then rolled toward the hole and in for an amazing hole-in-one. As the crowd was cheering, Crozier somewhat nonchalantly put his club back in his bag. He got high-fives and applause from the crowd as Woods, who was watching, came up and gave him a big hug to congratulate the junior for the feat.
