Graham DeLaet launched his tee shot on the 301-yard 4th hole with the intent of reaching it in one - and he did.

DeLaet, who has never won a professional tournament on American soil, almost had a hole-in-one on the par-4 14th hole, driving the ball eight feet past the hole.

DeLaet was trying to become the second player to record a hole-in-one this week, after Dutchman Joost Luiten aced the par-3 fourth hole Thursday.

Dennis Smith Jr. Says the Knicks Pressured Him to Eat Octopus
Teams sometimes hit draft prospects with offbeat, non-basketball related questions in hopes of better understanding the player. As for the Knicks, forcing a 19-year-old to eat tentacles just goes to show why Phil Jackson wasn't working in NY .

"I could have just gone 1, 1, but going 2, 2 is pretty good on those holes, too", DeLaet told his caddie, Julien Trudeau.

On Saturday he played the four-hole stretch from holes 13 through 16 in a remarkable 6-under par, highlighted by back-to-back eagles on No. 14 and 15. DeLaet would sink the 8-foot eagle to pick up 2 shots and move to 1 over.

Moving day at the PGA Championship hasn't been as thrilling as the wild third rounds that the U.S. Open and Open Championship provided.
