Japan's Satoshi Kodaira accomplished a rare feat on Thursday, carding a double-eagle on the par-5 first at Colonial Country Club.
Kodaira knocked in a 234-yard shot with a 3-iron for what's known as an "albatross" in the opening round of the Fort Worth Invitational.
This marks just the second double-eagle in the tournament's history and the second on the PGA Tour this season.
In 1978, George Burns became the first golfer with an albatross at Colonial. He hit a 1-iron approximately 200 yards on the 572-yard hole.

Earlier this month at the Players Championship, reigning U.S. Open winner Brooks Koepka had a double-eagle on the 16th in the final round. He knocked it in with a 6-iron from 208 yards.
The albatross gave Kodaira, ranked No. 29 in the world, a chance to flirt with posting the best front-nine in tournament history. He was 7-under on the front side going into No. 9, but ended with a double-bogey to shoot a 5-under 30. The lowest front nine is a 7-under 28 by Wayne Levi in 1993.
