There have only been 34 holes-in-one made during the Masters Tournament.
There have only ever been three on the famed 12th hole – dubbed Golden Bell – during the tournament.
That makes what Sepp Straka did even more impressive Monday during a practice around ahead of the 2023 Masters.
Straka, playing alongside fellow Georgia Bulldog Chris Kirk as well as Abraham Ancer and JT Poston, played his shot beautifully over Rae’s Creek and landed it just on the green. It bounced three times and then gently rolled in the cup.
And then, let the celebration begin, as Straka and everyone else on the tee box loved it.
