Golfer Mark Hubbard made a hole-in-one in the first round of the Rocket Mortgage Classic, but as an ace he was sure he missed by simply hitting him with his club.

Hubbard was close to the 11th hole on a par Thursday on North Field at the Detroit Country Club.

He had thrown a hole punch eight times prior to the event, but this blow he wasn’t confident in. Hubbard even intentionally brought down his club as soon as he sent the ball sailing toward the green, according to the PGA Tour website.

That’s embarrassing,” Hubbard said, turning to the can.

But when Hubbard turned around, he realized that the ball was headed straight toward the pin.

“Dude, you better not go in,” said Wyndham Clark, one of Hubbard’s playing partners, as he watched the ball.

Hubbard punched a hole in a result that surprised him.

One of the play partners told Hubbard that he wouldn’t give him a five. Another joked: “It doesn’t matter. You can’t give up your club.”

Hubbard spoke to reporters about the hole-in-one after his 68th turn.

“I mean, frankly, it was very embarrassing,” Hubbard said. “I didn’t quite know where the ball was going today. Took a week off and anything I didn’t feel was out of place, and I think I left the club in about three of the last four shots as well, and they all ended up fine.”

“I felt really stuck, and I thought he would be on the right track from the green,” he continued. “I looked up, and it was a perfect one-yard draw…it fell and fell like a knockout.”
