The seventh at Pebble Beach Golf Links is one of the most iconic holes in the world. And this past weekend, it played host to a moment one couple will never forget.
Peter Burns, a studio anchor for ESPN’s SEC network, and his wife Lauren Burns took to the tee at Pebble’s par-3 seventh — a deceptively challenging short hole with one of the most breathtaking views in America. They were there to find out the gender of their baby.
Burns teed up a ball and prepared to hit — with his excited wife looking on. It was a special ball, designed to emit a plume of smoke upon impact. The color of the smoke would correspond to the gender of their baby — blue for a boy, punk for a girl.
Burns eyed the target — the tiny green which sat slightly more than 100 yards away. He took the club back, and struck the ball.
The smoke was pink.
Lauren excitedly ran to her husband and jumped in his arms. This was a pretty cool gender reveal.
Amazingly, Burns gathered his composure after the exciting moment to finish out the hole and post a solid score.
“Made par somehow,” Burns told a Twitter follower. “Tough pin, lucky to two putt.”
