Springbok flyhalf Morne Steyn showed he was born to sink anything from the tee after nailing a hole-in-one at the Brookwater Golf and Country Club in Australia.

Steyn posted a picture with the flag from the hole in which he sank his incredible shot on Thursday morning (SA) on Twitter and Instagram with the caption: "1st HOLE IN ONE!!!What a feeling."

The 37-year-old, whose goal-kicking heroics from the rugby tee won SA the British & Irish Lions tour last month, is part of the Springbok Rugby Championship squad assembled in Australia.

The Boks face the Wallabies in Brisbane on Saturday looking to avenge their 28-26 defeat in the Gold Coast last Sunday.

Kick-off is at 09:05 (SA time).
