Golf-Fleetwood makes another hole-in-one at Masters

Tommy Fleetwood made a hole-in-one for the second straight event, this time at the 16th hole at Augusta National during the Masters first round on Thursday.

Fleetwood took dead aim in the late afternoon calm and fired at the pin from 170 yards. His ball landed a few paces in front of the hole and never looked like going anywhere but the bottom of the cup. The Englishman flung his arms in the air in celebration as the handful of spectators on hand roared.

It was the 23rd ace at the hole in the Masters, and the 16th this century. The other par-threes at Augusta have given up just nine between them. Fleetwood also had an ace during the World Golf Championships-Match Play event in Austin, Texas a fortnight ago.
