WATCH: Charley Hoffman makes hole-in-one on No. 16 at 2018 Masters

Charley Hoffman played the final par 3 of his 2018 Masters in style, recording an ace on the 16th hole in Sunday's final round.

With the hole playing 178 yards on Sunday to a familiar final-round hole location, Hoffman's tee shot hit just over the bunker in between the putting surface and the pond, and then it went a little to the right and rolled into the hole for an ace.



Hoffman threw his hands up in the air and then turned and gave high-fives all around to his caddie, playing partner Tony Finau and his caddie.


With the 1 on the card, Hoffman went to 6-under total for the tournament on a very strong Sunday for a player who has been so steady in the first 36 holes at Augusta National in Masters of recent memory.

Hoffman's hole-in-one is the 19th on the 16th in Masters history and the first since Louis Oosthuizen made an ace there in 2016. By far, the 16th hole has seen the most holes-in-one in Masters history. In comparison, the fourth hole has one seen one ever.
