In the opening-round of the Barracuda Championship, Spaun holes a seven-iron from 207 yards on the par-three 16th hole. And just like that the 26-year-old San Diego State alum went from +3 to +8, and about 50 spots up the leaderboard.

Spaun finished with a bogey (-1) and two more birdies (+4) to get to +11, tied 10th.
