The Sunday pin at Augusta National’s 16th hole is tough, but it’s also known for producing aces. Matt Kuchar took full advantage of that on Sunday.
Using the slope of the green to perfection, Kuchar drilled a perfect iron shot into the green. The ball bounced up onto the slope above the hole, allowing the slope of the green do the rest of the work.
🚨 KUUUUUUUCH 🚨 Ace alert!
High fives for everyone!

One lucky young fan was the beneficiary of Kuchar’s generosity after he pulled the ball out of the hole.

This ace vaulted Kuchar into a tie for third place with a score of five-under on the day and the tournament heading into the final two holes with the leaders several holes behind him.
