ATLANTA – If they say one is the loneliest number, count Chez Reavie as the loneliest guy East Lake has ever seen.

Reavie began the day at even par, 10 back of the trio of leaders Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele, but made up ground quick on his outward nine, finding himself 3 under when he stepped to the par-3 ninth.

It had been since 2002 since the last hole-in-one at the Tour Championship (Jerry Kelly, No. 11) and no one had ever made one at the ninth. As one of the longer par 3s on Tour, playing at 230 yards Friday, it’s easy to see why. Reavie didn’t seem to care, though.

The ace also marked the longest hole-in-one on the year, previously held by Nick Taylor who holed one from 221 yards at TPC San Antonio during the Valero Texas Open.
