Ryan Palmer may not have won the CIMB Asia Pacific Classic in Malaysia on Sunday, but he did have the great satisfaction of hitting a hole-in-one, his first in four years.

The United States player, who ended the $6.1-million co-sanctioned US PGA Tour and Asian Tour event in a respectable tied seventh place, aced the seventh hole for the shot of the day.

"It was a 210 (yard) hole, playing about 195, maybe. It was one of those shots when you get to the top of the ridge I knew I had to hit it pretty hard," said Texan Palmer.

"I flushed it right at it. It landed about 10 feet short and just kind of rolled in. When it landed I knew it looked good. I just watched it. It was like slow motion."

Palmer, 35, won a Chrysler for his ace in 2007 at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, but there was to be no special prize this time.
