Boeljon said she used a nine iron to hit the ball in on hole 16 that resulted to a draw with Lydia Ko and Angela Stanford at 65.

"I only realized it (was in the hole) by the lady that was behind the green that put her hands up," said Boeljon.

"I thought (to myself) 'I guess it's in' because we couldn't see because of the sun. Everyone was high-fiving. I go up to the hole and see it's in. Pretty cool."

It was the first record hold for Alkmaar-based Boeljon on the LPGA tour. She sits 120th on the Rolex rankings and is still working to earn a victory in a competition. So far, her top finish a tie for 15th at the Women's Australian Open earlier this year.
