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.
Nice!! 1 more hole in one than I’ve made with those golf balls this year! I’ll have to catch up
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:
