    It was his second hole-in-one on tour, and the 30th ace in the history of the Connecticut tournament.

    For his effort, Campbell wins a $50,000 shopping spree at a local jewelry store.

    He followed the ace with a birdie on 17, and finished the first round at 3-under-par, three shots off the early lead.
