DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- Stephen Gallacher shot a hole-in-one Sunday to find himself on the leaderboard at the Dubai World Championship.
The 103rd ranked Scotsman, tied for 26th after the third round, got off to a blazing start in his bid for a first European Tour win this season with three birdies on his first three holes.
Then, he sank his ace on the par-3, 4th, hitting a five iron 214 yards to the hole. It was the third hole-in-one of his career after two previous aces at the Dubai Desert Classic.
Gallacher is tied for fifth after nine holes, five shots behind leaders Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald who are yet to start their final rounds.
