Golfer Mark Hubbard delivered a hole-in-one in the first round of the Rocket Mortgage Classic, but in an ace he was sure he missed once he hit it with his club.

Hubbard entered the 11th hole at one under par Thursday on the North Course at the Detroit Country Club.

He had hit a hole-in-one eight times before the event, but he was not confident for this strike. Hubbard even deliberately dropped his club once he sent the ball to the green, according to the PGA Tour website.

“It’s embarrassing,” Hubbard said, turning to his caddy.

But when Hubbard turned around, he realized the bullet was heading straight for the pin.

“Man, you better not come in,” Wyndham Clark, one of Hubbard’s playing partners, said as he eyed the ball.

Hubbard had hit a hole in one in a result that took him by surprise.

A playing partner told Hubbard he wouldn’t give him a high five. Another quipped: “That doesn’t count. You can’t let your club down.”

Hubbard told reporters about the hole-in-one after his round of 68.

“I mean, honestly, it was pretty embarrassing,” Hubbard said. “I wasn’t quite sure where the ball was going today. Taking a week off and all that didn’t feel as fair, and I think I also let go of the club on about three of the last four shots, and everything went well.”

“I felt really stuck and thought it was going to be nice to the right of the green,” he continued. “I looked up and it was a perfect one yard draw… It landed and went out like a putt.”
