America’s Matthew Wolff slammed in the first LIV Golf hole-in-one in its history in the opening round of the Boston Invitational.

Wolff’s moment came on the 2 hole par-3 surrounded by supporters howling like a pack of wolves as he struck the 178 yard master stroke.

The shot left 23-year-old Wolff and fellow American Talor Gooch one shot ahead of the chasing pack after day one carding a fantastic 7-under 63 at The Invitational.

Wolff finished runner-up behind Swedish debutant Henrik Stenson in the previous leg of the LIV Golf Invitational held at Bedminster.

Wolff spoke about his hole-in-one and overall performance after day one. Wolff said: “Yeah, it's great. Out here, it just feels like everyone is having a really good time. I'm having a really good time. I don't know about you, it's just everyone is having a blast. It was really cool to do that in front of -- on a part of the golf course where there's a lot of fans, and to be the first one to have an ace at LIV Golf is really good, but obviously it's still just first round of the tournament, and got to keep the pedal down.

“Other than my ace, I actually played well, so it was cool.”

Six big name golfers joined the field for LIV Golf’s fourth event of the year, which includes world No. 2 and 2022 Open Champion Cameron Smith.

Cameron Smith sits tied in third with fellow debutant Joaquin Niemann on 6-under.
