A hole-in-one is rare. A hole-in-one at the Masters? Even more unlikely. But two holes-in-one on the same hole in the final round of the Masters? Well, that’s just impossible — or so we thought.
That crazy feat occured on Sunday morning as both Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas hit aces at hole No. 16.

DeChambeau got things started at the par-3, 170-yard hole by hitting his shot to the right side of the green before the ball found a slope and trickled into the hole. A jubilant and jumping DeChambeau needed a bit of an emotional boost after shooting an opening round 66 to tie him for the lead, one which quickly vanished as he shot a 75 and 73 on Friday and Saturday.
The hole-in-one was the first of his career and the 28th in Masters history.

But if a single hole-in-one doesn’t make your socks go up and down, Thomas delivered an encore performance just three hours later on the same hole. Thomas’ shot took nearly the same path on the green as DeChambeau’s, as a more subdued Thomas passed out a few high-fives. The ace moved Thomas three shots back of the leader.

Thomas’ ace was the 29th in Masters history and 22nd at hole No. 16. Charley Hoffman had the most recent hole-in-one at 16, occuring last year.
