Golf: The craziest hole in one you'll ever see

There have been three hole in ones at the same hole at Augusta for the first time in history but the last was one you'll have never seen before.

After Shane Lowry and Davis Love III both sunk aces within 20 minutes at the par three 16th hole during the final round of the Masters, South African Louis Oosthuizen made it three with an extraordinary shot.

His ball struck the ball of his playing partner, but despite that still went in the hole.

Earlier Lowry aced the 170-yard par three, quickly followed by Love III 20 minutes later.

Lowry, the 29-year-old Irishman, used an 8-iron and the ball hopped three times on the green and curled back to the left before dropping into the hole.

Lowry pumped his fists and high-fived playing partner Patrick Reed while the patrons let out a roar that could be heard all across Augusta National.


It was the 16th ace at the hole known as "Redbud" and the first in four years.

Only about 20 minutes, Love followed him up with another ace.

The Ryder Cup captain took 7-iron, landed the ball in the middle of the green and watched it trickle down and curve left - straight into the hole.


It was the fourth time since 2004 at the Masters that there had been a hole-in-one on the same hole in the same round.

Last time was 2012, when Adam Scott and Bo Van Pelt each aced No. 16.

It was a rare highlight Sunday for Love, one of three 50-plus players to make the cut at Augusta. The ace made him 7 over on the day.
