Golf: Matt Wallace nails hole-in-one at PGA Championship

English golfer Matt Wallace is in dreamland after nailing a hole-in-one during the third round of the US PGA Championship.   

Playing alongside three-time major winner Jordan Spieth, Wallace holed out with a five iron from 232 yards on the 16th hole at Bellerive Country Club.

Wallace's approach landed just short of the flag before rolling right into the centre of the cup.

It was the 26th hole-in-one in the PGA Championship since such records began in 1983.

The 28-year-old, with three European Tour victories on his resume, celebrated as he walked up the fairway then dug the ball out of the hole, kissed it and tossed it into the crowd.

 "That was the best shot of my life probably," he said.

"In front of a few thousand people, in front of Jordan, my caddie Dave [McNeilly] as well - finally picked a good club for me!   

"I flushed it right into my zone. We can't see where it lands into the shade, but when it landed the crowd started cheering, and then it rolled in and they went mental and it kind of reverberated back to the tee, and then I just went crazy.   

"So, yeah, it's a special day for me."    

Wallace sits in a tie for 21st at five-under par.
