PGA Tour Golfer Jon Rahm hit an insane shot during Tuesday’s practice for The Masters, hitting the ball along the surface of the water en route to a hole-in-one on the 16th hole.

It has become something of a tradition for golfers to attempt to skip their ball across the pond in front of the par-three 16th at Augusta National during pre-tournament practice rounds.

And the Spaniard Rahm pulled off the shot so well that not only did his golf ball find the green, it curved around the back of the putting surface and curled perfectly into the cup.

A delighted Rahm then high-fives his caddie and fellow competitor Rickie Fowler who are both surely just as impressed with the shot as we are.

Video of the shot has been making its rounds on Twitter.

The hole-in-one was a nice present for Rahm’s 26th birthday, which is today, Nov. 10.

Meanwhile, the hole-in-one was Rahm’s second during Masters practice. He managed the same accomplishment on Monday at Augusta National’s par-3 fourth hole. That moment was captured on video by American Rickie Fowler.

Jon Rahm Says ‘It Would Mean A Lot to Win Masters’

If Rahm were to win this year at Augusta National, he would become the fourth Spanish winner after Seve Ballesteros, Jose Maria Olazabal and Sergio Garcia.

Rahm had earlier spoken about what it would mean to achieve such as feat.

“It would mean a lot,” said the second-ranked player in the world. Rahm has finished in the top 10 in each of his last two Masters appearances.

Furthermore, Rahm said he would “love to add his name to the list” of Spanish winners.

“Needless to say, it’s a special event for everybody who comes and competes at the Masters,” he said. “I would say there’s such Spanish history of champions here, with three great champions and three idols of mine, that I would love to be able to add my name to that list.”

The Masters is set to begin this Thursday and will run to Sunday. Rahm is scheduled to tee off at 7:33 a.m. alongside Bryson DeChambeau and Louis Oosthuizen.
