Watch: Matt Kuchar hits hole-in-one at the Masters and gives ball to a young fan

After going into Day Four at level par, American golfer Matt Kuchar had a terrific final round at The Masters finishing up at -5 under, with the highlight of the 38-year-old's afternoon undoubtedly a hole-in-one on the Par 3 16th.

After getting on to the green from the tee box, Kuchar's shot settled and eventually rolled to the cup to complete the ace, becoming the first golfer to hit a hole-in-one at this year's tournament.

Kuchar expectedly celebrated his ace with delight, but he added a touch of class to the occasion when he gave a young boy the lucky ball.

Kuchar was just the 28th player in Masters history to hit a hole in one during the tournament, and although the kid receiving the ball may not have fully understood the gravity of the occasion, he was understandably ecstatic nonetheless.
