Masters Tournament holes-in-one: A history of aces at Augusta National


In the history of the Masters Tournament, Augusta National Golf Club has seen 27 holes-in-one spread over the four par 3s on the golf course.

Of the four par 3s, the 240-yard (nowadays) fourth hole has seen the fewest aces, with just Jeff Sluman making a hole-in-one there in 1992.

After that, the 12th hole has the next-fewest number of holes-in-one with three. Curtis Strange was the last to do it in 1988.

As you might imagine with the slope of its green, the 16th hole has seen the most holes-in-one with 18, including a record three in 2016.
