Jack Nicklaus Has Hole-In-One at Masters Par 3 Contest

For golfers, a hole-in-one is kind of the holy grail of the sport. It's something we all achieve for but is almost impossible to actually achieve.

Don't tell that to Jack Nicklaus.

Competing in the annual Masters Par 3 Contest on Wednesday with playing partners Gary Player and Ben Crenshaw, who filled in for the still injured Arnold Palmer, the North Palm Beach resident recorded a hole-in-one on the fourth hole after hitting his shot 15 feet past the hole and watching it spin back and in the cup.

Making it even more special was the fact that it was the first time Nicklaus ever recorded an ace at Augusta National in any facet. Before yesterday he had never done it in a recreational, practice, or tournament round.

Here is a video of the hole-in-one:

Nicklaus wasn't the only one with a hole-in-one on the day. Jupiter resident had not one, but two hole-in-ones on the day and eventually lost in a playoff to Kevin Streelman for the Par 3 Contest title.
