WATCH: Flag is 342 yards away. @BubbaWatson pulls driver - and barely misses a hole-in-one:

The par-3 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale grabs most of the attention at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, and usually for good reason. But some amazing things can happen on the other holes as well. Bubba Watson proved that on Thursday, when he darn near made a hole-in-one on the par-4 17th hole. With the flag wafting in the breeze a cool 342 yards away from the teebox, Watson pulled his big pink Ping G30 driver and fired. His tee shot flew a long way, then hopped and rolled – right near the flag. In fact, it went a few feet past the flag. Unfortunately, Watson couldn't convert the eagle, and wound up with a two-putt birdie en route to a first-round 65.
