KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysian golfer Mohd Nazri Zain had a rare hole-in-one on a par-4 hole during the SapuraKencana National Qualifier tournament on Wednesday.

Zain holed out on the water-lined 289-yard 16th hole on the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club's west course during the tournament, which awards the winner a place in the $7 million CIMB Classic.

Zain finished with a 2-over 73 Wednesday and in 20th place, 15 strokes behind playoff winner Danny Chia of Malaysia.

There has been only one hole-in-one on a par-4 on the PGA Tour, by American golfer Andrew Magee at the TPC Scottsdale during the FBR Open, now Phoenix Open, in 2001.
