American Shawn Stefani sunk the first ever hole-in-one at a U.S. Open held at Merion on Sunday in the final round. 

Though he would finished in a tie for 60th with a 19-over 299, Stefani made some history in the process. 

On the par-3 17th hole, Stefani lifted his tee shot to the right and back of the green and in the rough, but watched as it slowly rolled down into the cup. The ball wedged slightly between the flag and the cup, the 31-year-old from Baytown, Texas, was elated at the tee and celebrating with his caddie.

It reportedly was the 43rd hole-in-one is U.S. Open history.

Ranked No. 113 in the world, has two top 10 finishes this year. However, he did struggle in March and April, missing three straight cuts.

The hole-in-one should absolutely make up for those disappointments.
