Bryson DeChambeau revealed he came close to making the very first ace of his golf career en route to sharing the first-round lead at The Masters on Thursday.
DeChambeau, 25, flew home on the back nine at Augusta National on day one when making six birdies on his last seven holes to join Brooks Koepka out in front.
Bidding for his maiden major title despite having already chalked up five wins on the PGA Tour, DeChambeau revealed his scientific methods to playing golf have never quite found the right formula for a hole-in-one before.
"No I've never ever had one [hole-in-one]," said DeChambeau.
"Xander Schauffele doesn't have one either. Two top-10 players in the world not having hole-in-ones, at least that what I was told, I may be wrong on that but that's what I was told. Pretty unique."
