The walk-off ace
By mustang6560 on 9/13/12
The word clutch, in most sports, usually translates to scoring a last second goal to win the game.

In golf, since there is no game clock, the closest equivalent we have to hitting a 3-pointer at the buzzer or catching a TD as time expires is the walk-off ace. However, it's a rare feat. In fact, prior to the second round of the USGA Senior Women's Amateur Championship, the only clutch hole-in-one I had ever heard about was Jonathan Byrd's walk-off ace. But, thanks to Anna Schultz, the '07 Senior Women's Amateur champion, I've now heard of two people who have hit a walk-off ace.

In her second round match, Anna hit a hole-in-one on the par-3 17th hole at Hershey Country Club to defeat her opponent 3&1. The truly crazy amazing thing is her recent walk-off ace is her ninth career hole-in-one.
