KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Atlanta Braves closer Craig Kimbrel was almost unhittable in 2012. He has bigger plans this season.

He got off to a great start on Monday when with a hole-in-one at the tough ChampionsGate Golf Club. Kimbrel lost sight of the ball on the 180-yard second hole, and figured it fell into a greenside bunker. He looked everywhere except the hole.

Kimbrel says he "couldn't believe it," adding, "I think it went in on the fly. It was my first one."

He got a break after the round when he was made aware that it was up to anyone shooting an ace to buy a round of drinks for everyone.

Kimbrel says laughing, "It was a charity event. There was an open bar. I paid for it all."
