While no one will ever be able to take away the unforgettable moment that Shane Lowry got his hole-in-one, there have been a few other notable shots the golf world has been blessed with in recent time.

For example, there was this hole-in-one by Sam Ryder on the 16th hole at the Phoenix Open back in the middle of February.

As with any hole-in-one, it’s a shot few will ever forget.

For Lowry, perhaps he was motivated by being rained out of the Honda Classic when he was in the lead at the end of February, in which he noted the championship was “stolen from me“. Who knows. Either way, March 13 will be a day Lowry never forgets. No one can take that away from him for as long as he lives.
