VIDEO: Shane Lowry, Davis Love III made holes-in-one on 16th at 2016 Masters


Shane Lowry and U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III got the Augusta National crowds into a frenzy early on Sunday at the 2016 Masters by making the 16th and 17th holes-in-one in the history of the tournament at the par-3 16th.

The Irishman Lowry went first, using an 8-iron, then high-fiving most everyone in the crowd in his celebration.

Lowry's ace was the first on the hole in four years.

A little later, Love III made his way to the tee and duplicated the feat with a 7-iron.

This isn't the first time that there were two aces on the 16th hole in the same final round of the Masters. Nathan Green and Ryan Moore did the double in 2010.
