Mexican Soccer Announcer Goes Crazy for Justin Thomas’ Hole-in-One (Video)
If you thought that Spanish-language announcers went crazy for soccer goals, wait until you see how they respond to a far less frequent event—like a hole-in-one.
Justin Thomas aced the 232-yard par-3 13th hole at the WGC-Mexico Championship on Saturday, and the Mexican soccer announcer certainly didn’t hold back the enthusiasm.
Here’s the play in English, followed by a tweet from the PGA with the Spanish announcer making the call. I’m guessing you’ll favor the second one.

Part of me likes to think the announcer was sitting right on the course, making the call while other players were teeing off, rattling them for the rest of their day.
