WATCH: Former UGA golfer Russell Henley eagles, breaks the fifth hole at 2017 Masters
Russell Henley’s second shot on the fifth hole was so good that it literally broke the golf course.
The former UGA golfer, who only got into the tournament by winning last weekend’s Shell Houston Open, holed out on the par-4 fifth hole for an eagle. It is the first eagle on the hole since 2003.

The shot was so good that it actually broke a piece of the hole and caused a delay in the tournament because officials had to install a new hole.

Henley finished the tournament at 1-under par after a Sunday round of 69. That score puts him in first among SEC golfers in the field. Kevin Kisner is the only other UGA golfer to make the cut, and he finished the day at 8-over par. Bubba Watson and Hudson Swafford, the other two Georgia golfers in the field, both missed the cut.
