Golf-Wallace ace puts him on PGA leaderboard

ST. LOUIS, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Englishman Matt Wallace popped up onto the PGA Championship third round leaderboard in spectacular style on Saturday, carding an ace at the 232-yard, par three 16th.

Pulling a five-iron from his bag, Wallace watched as his shot hit the green, took two hops and rolled straight into the cup triggering a massive roar that washed over Bellerive Country Club.

A smiling Wallace celebrated as he walked up the fairway then dug the ball out of the hole, kissed it and tossed it into the crowd.

The hole-in-one moved Wallace onto the first page of the leaderboard leaving him two-under on the day with two to play and five-under for the tournament. (Reporting by Steve Keating in St. Louis. Editing by Pritha Sarkar)
