Jordan Spieth celebrated his fourth career hole-in-one on Thursday at the Valero Texas Open in style, as he was gifted a new car for achieving the feat.

The three-time major winner drove away in a brand new Lexus after making the shot on Hole 16. He finished his first round with a score of one-over 73.

However, his friend and fellow golfer Rickie Fowler jumped at the opportunity to make his mark on Spieth's new ride. As Spieth was driving away from Thursday's round, Fowler was photographed signing the car's windshield.

Fowler himself has drained three hole-in-ones in his career, with the most recent ace happening at the 2023 Waste Management Open.

Before Thursday's hole-in-one, Spieth's most recent ace on the PGA Tour came in 2021 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, while his previous two aces occured in his first year on tour at the 2013 Puerto Rico Open and then in his historic 2015 season at the BMW Championship.
