April 8, 2017 AUGUSTA Russell Henley hits his shot from the fairway to the 1st green. Play begins in the third round of the 81st Masters tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club, Saturday, April 8, 2017. CURTIS COMPTON/ AJC

Russell Henley’s second shot on the 5th hole was so good that it literally broke the golf course.

The former UGA golfer, who only got into the tournament by winning last weekend’s Shell Houston Open, holed out on the par-4 5th hole for an eagle. It is the first eagle on the hole since 2003.

The shot was so good that it actually broke a piece of the hole and caused a delay in the tournament because officials had to install a new hole.

After the eagle, Henley is now at even-par for the tournament.
