VIDEO: Corey Conners hits hole-in-one to put him in contention at the Masters
The Master’s Tournament has been going on throughout the week. Saturday, April 10th, marks the start of the third round. This means we’re closing in on the winner of the tournament, as the fourth and final round takes place on Sunday, April 11th.
There are multiple big-name golfers in the tournament this year. Justin Rose leads the way as of this writing, while Bryson DeChambeau is tied for 37th. We have some young names at the top of the rankings list, however, Will Zalatoris has kept up with Rose throughout the Masters so far.
However, another name that’s gaining attention is Canadian Corey Conners. He’s currently sitting in third place behind Rose and Zalatoris after hitting a clutch hole-in-one shot on the sixth hole of the course.

Single-handily the toughest shot to make in golf. It’s a rare shot to see make, as many people have never even made a hole-in-one, to begin with. After watching this shot, Corey Conners makes it look easy.
Conners jumped from -3 to -5 in just one stroke, shooting him up the rankings for the tournament. The Canadian made waves last year as he was able to score a 65 last year, giving him the best score for a Canadian golfer in PGA history. If he continues to play the way he has been, he has a real chance to break that record again.
Conners isn’t the only player to hit a hole-in-one at the Masters this weekend. Tommy Fleetwood did it in the opening round on the 16th hole.
The Masters’ Tournament is currently airing on CBS and will continue through Sunday. Tune in and catch the action before it ends, as it’s coming down to a tight race.
