Jon Rahm Hits Hole-In-One By Skimming Golf Ball Across Water

Jon Rahm, take a bow Sir!

The Spaniard warmed up for the upcoming Masters in the best way possible - by hitting an incredible hole-in-one.

But it was the way in which he nailed the ace that truly left viewers speechless.

During a practice session at Augusta, the often-tricky 170-yard sixteenth hole was no problem for Rahm as he defied logic by skimming the ball across water to sink his shot.

The moment left commentators in awe and even had some fans calling it the greatest hole-in-one of all-time.

Before the shot was even played, Rahm knew exactly what he wanted to do.

Instead of placing the ball on the tee like any normal golfer, the world number two placed his ball a few yards forward near the side of the lake.

Then, without hesitation, he hit a low-driven shot that skimmed across the water beautifully.

Granted, this is a relatively popular move by professionals during practise sessions.

But what made this so special was the end result.

After the ball finally emerged from bouncing off the water three or four times, it landed perfectly on the back end of the green and rolled straight into the hole.

Rahm was mobbed by his caddie Adam Hayes as the two celebrated together on the empty course.

For the first time in history, this year's Masters will be played without a live crowd due to the strict regulations surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

But even though there was no one there to witness this amazing moment in the flesh, video of it quickly flooded the internet with fans reacting to it on social media.

While most were in awe of what they'd just seen, perhaps one bloke summed it up best.

He simply said: "That must be, without any question, the greatest hole in one in history."
