History was made at the Masters on Sunday as three players hit holes-in-one at the 16th hole at Augusta.

Shane Lowry and Davis Love III ended their Masters week on a high note as both hit aces at the par-three 16th on Sunday, before Louis Oosthuizen added a fortunate third. It is the first time in Masters history that the 16th hole has been aced three times in a single round.

Lowry holed out with an eight iron, his tee shot landing in the perfect spot to the right of the hole and trickling down the slope into the cup.

Shortly after, Love followed suit with a perfect seven iron to land an ace of his own — and the 17th hole-in-one at the 16th in Masters history.

Oosthuizen then enjoyed some good fortune when his ball ricocheted off JB Holmes’ ball and rolled into the cup.

“It was amazing to have a hole-in-one on 16 around here in the final round,” Lowry said following the conclusion of his round. “I just wish I would have been able to come up with more birdies, but it was a perfect shot.

“I just hit it in right of the hole and [the slope] just took it down and in. I feel pretty lucky to have a hole-in-one around this place, in this tournament. It’s nice. I’m sure I’ll get a picture somewhere and frame it in the house and it will be a nice memento to have.”

After picking the ball out of the hole, Lowry motioned as if he was going to throw it into the crowd, but added: “No, I wasn’t giving the ball away. My last hole-in-one in competition my parents were there as well in Dubai and I still have the ball from that. So I feel like I’ll keep that one.”
