Pro-Golfer Somehow Skips Ball Over Water To Sink An Insanely Impressive Hole-In-One Practice Shot

Some people are so talented that it’s incomprehensible.

Meet Jon Rahm—number 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking and currently participating in the 2020 Master’s Tournament.

And he just made sunk a shot by skipping his golf ball across the water.

Casual, right?

Actually, no.  Not casual at all.

How the HECK did he accomplish that?

Apparently it’s Masters practice round tradition to try skipping the ball across the pond at this particular hole (hole 16 at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia), but it’s only happened three times in the last 11 years.

And the times that the ball does skip across the pond, it’s very rare for it to get onto the green and then to make it into the hole.

Rahm is a rising star.  In 2018, he came in 4th place in the Masters tournament.  The Spaniard recently shared that he was feeling “pretty confident” about his chances this year.

He told Fox Sports:

“I’ve been putting in the work and golfing well. Hopefully something special happens this weekend.” 

And just like that, something special did happen.
