The Spanish golfer Jon rahm surprised this Tuesday during the training of the Augusta Masters with an unlikely blow to pocket a ball that bounced three times in the water and drew an implausible spectacular on the green before entering.
Rahm, who was celebrating his 26th birthday, has signed up two holes in one during rounds of training of the tournament, which is played this week after its postponement from April as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It’s something that is done here every year. Under these circumstances, Rickie Fowler and I have been hesitant to do it, but in the end it’s tradition. It is a good shot to put it on the green and the fact that it has put it in the hole is incredible“Rahm told EFE about his second hole in one on the par 3 of the 16th hole, in which the ball has gotten after bouncing three times in the water.
Every year during the practice rounds of the Masters, players attempt to put the ball on the 16th green by bouncing it in the water. “Scoring two holes in one in two days like this is one more sign,” said Rahm, who hit the ball in one stroke on par 3 of hole 4 on Monday, and has given himself another hole in one on the day of his 26th birthday.
“I hope luck has only just begun instead of starting to subtract it before the tournament, “the world number two concluded with a smile.
