Mark Walhberg makes ace with “RORS” ball
By Stephanie Wei under Gossip

Actor Mark Wahlberg is having a fantastic Friday. He was out for an early round of golf at Pelican Hill Golf Club in Newport Beach, California, when he recorded a hole-in-one from 161 yards with a 9-iron. He took to Twitter to share his good fortune, along with a picture of the ball — which appears to be one that he got from Rory McIlroy.

McIlroy saw Wahlberg’s tweet and replied with his reaction.

Wahlberg, an avid golfer, is a 14-handicap, according to a quick GHIN look-up (BTW, I love that you can do this!). Screen Shot 2016-03-11 at 11.03.51 AM

He often plays in celebrity outings, with his most recent appearance at last month’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, where he was partnered with Bubba Watson. Wahlberg showed he has game during the second round when he nearly aced the par-3, 153-yard third hole at Monterey Peninsula. Check it out:

Life is good for Marky Mark.
