Matt Kuchar aced Augusta National’s 16th today, elevating the PGA pro to third place at the Masters and completing the 11th hole-in-one on that hole in the past 14 years. His prize is some sunscreen.
Holes-in-one for everyone! Moments after Shane Lowry’s eight-iron tee shot found the hole, veteran Davis Love III repeated the trick using a seven-iron. Who needs guys named Spieth or McIlroy?
Wonderfully profane Irishman Shane Lowry may be tied for 42nd place in this final round of the Masters, but he took home a special moment today on the 16th when he became the first in four years to hit a hole-in-one from that tee. He seems pretty excited.
