Historic hole-in-one for Shane Lowry

Offaly golfer Shane Lowry lands a hole-in-one at the sixteenth at the US Masters

We can’t stop watching this fabulous moment as the bearded Irishman, and Offaly’s pride sank the shot of the tournament at the US Masters 2016. 

Lowry completed the 181-yard 16th hole, his eight-iron approach landing on the green and arcing perfectly towards the hole to gain the first hole-in-one of the day.  It was the 16th ever hole-in-one at the 16th in Masters history.

Lowry will receive a crystal bowl to mark his achievement. He tweeted this about his experience of the tournament.

As if one hole-in-one wasn’t enough for the gallery at 16, US Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III nailed his tee-shot at the 16th only 20 minutes later.
