The Spanish golfer gave himself this delicacy to celebrate his 26 years before the start of one of the Majors of the year.
The Spanish golfer Jon Rahm, who turns 26 this Tuesday, made two holes in one during the training rounds of the Augusta Masters, which will begin on Thursday after its postponement from April as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It is something that is done here every year. In these circumstances, Rickie Fowler and I have hesitated to do so, but in the end it is tradition. It’s a good shot to put it on the green and the fact that I put it in the hole is incredible“Rahm told EFE.
What he did on his second hole in one on par 3 of 16 went viral because it is really admirable, since the ball made a “duckling” in the water, entered the green, crossed the grass with a parabola and entered the hole.
Every year during the practice rounds of the Masters, players try to put the ball on the 16th green by poking it into the water.
“Putting two holes in one in two days like this is one more sign,” said Rahm, a former number one, who hit the ball in one stroke on par 3 of hole 4 on Monday and has been awarded another hole in one in on his 26th birthday.
“I hope that luck has only just begun instead of subtracting it before the tournament,” the world number two concluded with a smile.
