Practice made perfect for Rickie Fowler at TPC Sawgrass on Wednesday, as he made a hole-in-one on the iconic 17th hole.
Most players tend to wait for the tournament itself before putting on a show, but the 2015 champion got the party started early.
Stepping up to the 17th tee during his practice round on Wednesday, Fowler thrilled the assembled fans with this peach of a shot:

Fowler really seems to enjoy playing the 17th with its trademark island green – a hole that has many players just praying they find the surface.
He birdied it three times in a row during his 2015 Players Championship victory – once in regulation and twice in the playoff.
