Jon Rahm, the World No. 2 golfer from Spain, pulled off one of the most exquisite shots seen on a golf course during a practice session of the Masters 2020 in Georgia on his 26th birthday on Tuesday. In a video doing the round on social media, Rahm can be seen hitting the ball as it skims over a pond and curls its way into the hole 16. “His second in two days, Jon Rahm skips his way to a hole-in-one at No. 16 – on his birthday, no less. #themasters,” The Masters’ official Twitter handle captioned the video.

The 26-year-old is eyeing his first major title and he will have his task cut out with the likes of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy in the mix.
Rahm was upbeat about his chances at the major, starting Thursday.
“I can’t lie, I’m feeling pretty confident,” Rahm had said.
“I hit it about as good as I (can) hit it tee to green really in the tournament, especially on Sunday and the weekend,” he added.
The Spaniard said that he is working hard and is hoping that something special could happen this weekend.
“I’ve been putting in the work and golfing well. Hopefully something special happens this weekend,” Rahm mentioned.
