An 11-year-old boy from Corpus Christi, Texas, hit a hole-in-one on Wednesday at a club that's home to a new golf course created by Tiger Woods, reports ABC News.

Taylor Crozier was among a group of youngsters from the Southern Texas PGA Junior Golf Club invited to the Bluejack National, a resort-style community in Montgomery where members can play on the first Woods-designed course in the U.S. The kids were there to take a swing at the opening of The Playgrounds, a shorter, 10-hole course.

When he stepped up to the tee, Taylor was introduced by the commentator as a "man with a perfect school attendance record until today." Woods was standing right behind him, watching the shot. When Taylor hit the hole-in-one, Woods held his head in his hands, then gave Taylor a hug and a high-five, saying, "Are you kidding me right now?" "[The] inaugural shot and he holes it!" Woods shouted to the crowd.

Woods took to Twitter to celebrate Taylor's achievement: "First hole at The Playgrounds and this happened," accompanied by a video of the shot.
