Few things are more entertaining than Jordan Spieth playing a round of golf. Today was no different. The Texan made a hole-in-one on the 199-yard 16th hole of TPC San Antonio. As you can expect, the Texas crowd loved it.

Jordan Spieth's Ace sent the Valero Texas Open crowd into a frenzy

The 16th green is surrounded by grandstands which made for an electric crowd reaction. Jordan Spieth, on the other hand, had a pretty mild reaction for a player who had just made a hole-in-one.

It's probably fair to assume that is because of how the round had been going up to that point. Spieth was 4 over on the round before the ace, and he had just made a double bogey on the easiest hole on the course (the par-5 14th).

After grabbing the ball out of the hole, he raised it up in the air to acknowledge the fans, and then went ahead and threw it into the crowd.

This was Spieth's fourth career hole-in-one on the PGA Tour and his first since 2021 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

He went on to shoot a round of 73 (+1) thanks to the ace, and he will have a good chance to make the cut with a solid showing on Friday.
