VIDEO: 80-year-old Major winner Gary Player hits hole in one in Masters par 3 tournament
There is something special brewing at Augusta this week. Not only do we have one of the most competitive field's in recent memory but everybody seems to be peaking for the 2016 Masters.
Yesterday Rory McIlroy hit a hole in one in a practice round and today NINE players have matched that feat in the par 3 tournament. Rickie Fowler, Jimmy Walker and Zach Johnson all made hole in ones, but the biggest roar definitely came when nine-time major winner Gary Player found the cup with his tee shot.
The 80-year-old South African is no stranger to success at Augusta, having won the tournament three times, but hitting a hole in one at his age must have given him massive satisfaction.
