Matt Kuchar hit a hole-in-one on the 16th hole in the fourth round of the Masters on Sunday.

The fourth ace of Kuchar’s career moved him to 5-under, just three shots behind leader Justin Rose, with two holes remaining.

Kuchar’s shot on the 170-yard hole landed in front of the traditional flag placement of 30 yards from the front, 5 from the left, bounded past it, and then rolled down and into the hole.

Kuchar, a former standout at Georgia Tech, raised his arms and began high-fiving everyone around him in the gallery.

He retrieved the ball, signed it and gave it to a boy wearing an orange shirt and porkpie hat.
