AUGUSTA, Ga. — Tommy Fleetwood had no birdies in the opening round of the Masters. A hole-in-one made him smile anyway.
Fleetwood made an ace on the 170-yard 16th hole Thursday, raising his arms in triumph when the ball bounced a couple of times and rolled straight into the cup. It was the 32nd hole-in-one in Masters history, and of those, 23 have come on the 16th.
Fleetwood finished the day with four bogeys and the ace and shot a 2-over 74.
Amazingly, it was the second straight tournament in which Fleetwood has made a hole-in-one. He had another two weeks ago at the Match Play Championship.
