Watch Jon Rahm Sink Hole-in-one More Than The Masters Tournament On Her Birthday

Published

Spanish golfer Jon Rahm pulled off the rarest shot in golf during Tuesday’s practice round ahead of the Masters Tournament: a hole-in-one. The shot is only made more exciting by the fact that he sank it on his 26th birthday.

Rahm is certainly hoping to keep that momentum going as the Masters Tournament kicks off on Thursday. “Hole-in-one’s are always special, even more so at Augusta National. Here’s to hoping it happens again later this week,” he wrote in the caption on Instagram.

While making two hole-in-ones is impressive, people are simply astounded by the implausible shot he made on Tuesday. Some sports reporters on Twitter called it the “greatest golf shot in history.” Definitely not a bad birthday gift, if you ask me.

Other people praised him for not immediately starting drinking when the shot landed. Given that it was his second hole-in-one this week and his birthday, a toast certainly wouldn’t have been out of order.

Some people were more technical in their praise. Wall Street Journal editor Dave Marino-Nachison pointed out that by aiming away from the other balls on the green was key to the strategy in sinking the hole in one.

Ahead of the tournament, Rahm spoke about how walking down Magnolia Lane on the course gives him “butterflies” and that he’s continually learning on the course. “It’s such a special, iconic place for golfers,” he said in a video.
