Video: Jon Rahm hits amazing hole-in-one after skipping the pond during Masters practice round
The 2020 Masters at Augusta National will have a different feel this year, but some traditions endure.
Players in the Masters field have taken to the tradition of skipping the pond on the par-3 16th hole during practice rounds. It is a spectacle that often gives way to spectacular theatrics, much to the delight of crowds.
No fans are in attendance at this year’s Masters, but Spaniard Jon Rahm provided some thrills all the same on Tuesday.
Rahm’s effort at skipping the pond resulted in a phenomenal hole-in-one to a back-left pin location:

Then again, the cheap thrill of a hole-in-one pales in comparison to donning the esteemed green jacket, something Rahm is hoping to achieve this week with a win at the Masters.
The No. 2 golfer in the world had one of the best seasons on tour during the 2020 season, and is hoping to capture his first major championship this week.
Rahm is one of the betting favorites at this year’s Masters, and he certainly has every opportunity to win the green jacket if he can conjure up more magic like this throughout the week.
