The Masters 2021, Round 3: Corey Conners Aces the 6th at Augusta National


The Masters Tournament at Augusta National 2021 - Round 3

Corey Conners Aces the 6th Hole at Augusta National

Canadian Corey Conners is just the 6th player ever to fire a hole-in-one on the 6th hole at the Masters on Augusta National. In 85 years of tournaments, that is some achievement. 

From CBS-Sports:

Corey Conners has started his third round on absolute fire at the 2021 Masters, carding a birdie or better on four of his first seven holes and soaring up the leaderboard to join the pack of contenders chasing 36-hole leader Justin Rose. That "or better" was one of the best highlights we'll see all day, as Conners took aim at the par-3 6th and fired an arrow into the cup for a hole-in-one. 

Conners' ace is the second of the 2021 Masters, joining Tommy Fleetwood's hole-in-one from No. 16 on Thursday. While having multiple hole-in-ones in a single tournament is not rare -- both Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau recorded aces in 2019 and there were three in 2016 -- what is less common is seeing a 1 on the card at the sixth hole.

Playing at 184 yards on Saturday, No. 6 has seen just five hole-in-ones in Masters history prior to Conners' ace.  Full story here
