Justin Lower may not have won the PGA Tour's Byron Nelson Classic. However, the Canal Fulton native may have had the shot of the final round Sunday.

On the 147-yard 17th hole at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas, Lower sank a hole-in-one. That was part of a 2-under-par 70 he shot in the final round.

"A great way to cap off the week!," Lower tweeted later with a video clip of the ace.

The former Northwest High School and Malone University product finished tied for 46th in the event, shooting a four-round total of 14-under. K.H. Lee won the event at 26-under.

Lower started off hot the first two days of the tournament, shootig 8-under 64 in the opening round and 6-under 66 in Friday's second round. He was one shot off the lead at the midpoint of the tournament.

The first-round score marked his best round in a PGA event.

A 2-over 74 in Saturday's third round pushed Lower down the leaderboard.
