Kiradech eyes redemption at Players Championship

But Moore avoided the hazards, attacked the flag, and scratched the number one into his scorecard the ninth ace in The Players Championship tournament history, and the first since Sergio Garcia's hole-in-one in 2017.

Moore's ace hit the flagstick on the fly from 121 yards out on the par-3 hole, bringing a sliver of turf with it into the hole, before it nestled in the bottom of the cup.

Kiradech, 29, recalled his horror show on the 17th hole past year where he was six over on that hole alone during the weekend rounds.

The World No.6 shot a first round five-under par 67 to leave him a couple of shots adrift of leaders Tommy Fleetwood and Keegan Bradley.

"If you ask any player if they'd rather win a Players Championship or a major, everyone is going to say a major".

He also has some good memories from the hole, however.

"It's an all-or-nothing type shot".
