Aaron Cockerill made his second hole-in-one in the space of seven days yesterday. This time, it didn’t count for anything.
The Canadian made an ace on the famous 139-yard 16th at the Made in HimmerLand in his first round to get his score back to one-under-par for the day.
Then, the excitement clearly got the better of the 30-year-old, as he made a quadruple bogey 8 on the next hole after losing his ball off-the-tee.
Eventually, he signed for a four-over-par round of 75. Except, he didn’t.
Cockerill forgot to sign his scorecard and was promptly disqualified.
He then took to twitter to explain the gaffe, saying that the hole-in-one “chatter in the recording area” got the better of him, and he left without putting his signature to his score.
As harsh as it is, that left officials with only one option, to disqualify him.
Can confirm 2 aces in 7 days is pretty cool, although I didn’t exactly ‘validate’ it on the next .. ☃️ And with some hole in one chatter in the recording area I forgot to sign my card and got DQ’d 🤣 #haveaday— Aaron Cockerill (@A_Cockerill) September 1, 2022
Last week, Cockerill won a rather unusual prize, when he was awarded life insurance after making an ace at the Omega European Masters. He finished in a tie for 51st there. This week, however, it’s an early exit.
