Justin Thomas thought he had a once-in-a-lifetime moment Wednesday at the Masters Par 3 Contenst. Playing with defending champion Jordon Spieth, the 22-year-old Thomas made an ace on the fourth hole.
And to be sure, that may be a once-in-a-lifetime moment for the young Thomas.
But the patrons at Augusta didn’t have to wait another lifetime to see one. Thomas’s other playing partner, Rickie Fowler, jarred his tee shot for an ace after Thomas made his.
Fowler took to Snapchat for proof, because if you don’t post it and share it on the internet, did it really happen? And more importantly, does that count as a witness?
Here is Thomas making his:
And Fowler not to be outdone.
It should also be noted Thomas didn’t even shoot the first ace of the day. That honor goes to Webb Simpson.
And then, David Lingmerth and the Black Knight, Gary Player, had their turns on No. 7:
Next, Zach Johnson! Will it ever end?
No! Because Andy Sullivan had one on No.5 too:
Smylie Kaufman jarred one that would have been great even if it had stopped dead. Instead, it rolled back to the cup for ace.
And then there was Jimmy Walker, who set a new record with his -8 for the nine-hole round thanks in part to this uno at the second.
