Camilo Villegas Makes Two (!) Aces at Par-3 Contest
The Par-3 Contest at Augusta National is meant to be fun and games. But this is just insane.
Near the end of the day, the contest recorded five separate holes in one—tied for the most since 2002, when Toshi Izawa make back-to-back aces on Nos. 5 and 6. Colombian Camilo Villegas, the 2014 Wyndham Championship winner, had two of them. He became just the sixth golfer to card two aces at the contest.
Ace number one came at the 130-yard fourth hole, shortly after Jack Nicklaus holed out there and just before amateur Matias Dominguez did the same; in total, three players aced the same hole.
Number two pleased crowds at the 120-yard eighth. And both pleased Villegas very, very much.
