SHANE LOWRY IS out of the race for the green jacket at the Masters, but he produced one of the moments of the final round with this stunning hole-in-one at the 16th.

On one of Augusta National’s most iconic — and challenging — holes, Lowry hit a perfect eight-iron to the heart of the green:

And then watched as his ball ran the whole way down… and… IN!


It was the 16th hole-in-one on the 16th hole in Masters history, and a moment that the man from Clara will never forget.

“It was one of those things that I’ll remember for the rest of my life,” Lowry told the BBC after finishing with a birdie on the final hole for a total of 10-over par.

“It was a bit of an up-and-down week for me. I feel like I put myself right in there with two rounds to go and nothing really went for me over the weekend.”
