WATCH: Jordan Smith wins TWO cars with Genesis Scottish Open ace

Jordan Smith Hole In One

A hole-in-one helped Jordan Smith into contention at the Genesis Scottish Open.

However, it also scooped a new set of wheels, not just for him, but also for his caddie and lifelong friend Sam Matton.

Smith was going along nicely when he stepped onto the 17th tee at the Renaissance Club – but a good round turned into an unforgettable one.

Hitting a six-iron in, his tee shot caught the slope and dropped into the bottom of the cup.

“We actually didn’t see it,” Smith admitted after his round of 69, which took him to three-under for the week, which at the time of writing was a tie for sixth.

“I turned away and put the club in the bag, then I could hear the crowd getting louder and louder.

“Me and Sam grew up playing golf together and he was one of the ushers at my wedding so it’s great to have him on the bag.”

The cars were awarded for the first hole-in-one at the 17th by tournament sponsors Genesis. Smith will be heading home in a GV70 SUV, while Matton has got his hands on a GV60 crossover vehicle.
