Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler celebrate after both made a hole-in-one at the 4th hole.
Most amatuer golfers can only dream of one day hitting a hole-in-one.
But that’s why they’re amatuers.
At Wednesday’s Masters Par 3 Contest in Augusta, Ga., the professionals put on a show, setting a record for holes-in-one at the annual event with nine.
Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas hit back-to-back aces on the same hole.
Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson and Jimmy Walker also hit holes-in-one. Even Gary Player put one home, and he’s 80 years old. Player became the oldest golfer to sink a hole-in-one at the Par 3 Contest.
The previous record for holes-in-one was five in 2002 and 2015. In 2002, Toshi Izawa made two straight aces on the fifth and sixth holes.
