As the Masters golf tournament wrapped up on Sunday in Augusta, Georgia, Justin Spieth’s struggles briefly took a back seat to an especially quirky turn of events that saw three other players make history on a hole nicknamed “Redbud.”
According to the Associated Press, earlier in the day golfers Shane Lowry and Davis Love III took their first swings at the 16th hole and sank holes-in-one, the shot that is the stuff of most amateur duffers’ dreams.
It was very special: two aces on the same hole in the final round of golf’s most prestigious event.
But then, a bit later on, South African Louis Oosthuizen took his tee shot and — whack! — the ball sailed over the 170-yard expanse and landed on the green, where it started rolling and rolling … directly at a ball left in its path by another golfer.
In an instant, though, it ricocheted off that ball and made its final move into the cup for the day’s third ace. Indeed, it was the first time that there have been three holes-in-one on the same hole in a round at the Masters.
