Tommy Fleetwood on Thursday recorded a hole-in-one for the second straight event, this time at the 16th hole at Augusta National during the Masters first round. Fleetwood took dead aim with a nine-iron in the late afternoon calm and fired at the pin from 170 yards. His ball landed a few paces in front of the flag 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 a lovely looking shot ... a couple of bounces and in," Fleetwood said after a two-over-par 74 that trailed leader and compatriot Justin Rose by nine shots.
"I'm racking them up all of a sudden quickly. I'll try to keep it going."
