University of Texas sophomore Bohyun Park made the first hole-in-one in Augusta National Women's Amateur history when she aced the par-3 eighth on Thursday at Champions Retreat.

Park, who was narrowly inside the cut line at 1 over par, holed out from 142 yards to get to 1 under.

"I wasn't able to putt too well on the front nine, so I was like, just get it on the green," Park said after her round. "If I hit it close it's better. I actually kind of thinned it and was like, please just carry the water, and as soon as I saw the ball bounce, okay, thank God. I looked away, so I didn't see the ball go in, but I saw everybody raising their hands."

Park followed the ace with a birdie at the par-5 ninth before dropping shots at Nos. 10, 12 and 13. She responded, however, with birdies on Nos. 14 and 15.

She would shoot a 2-under-par 70 on Day 2, making her 1 under for the tournament, which is good for T-9.
