Jon Rahm aims to join an elite club of back-to-back Masters winners

Rahm will have his sights set on a historic achievement this week: becoming the first golfer since Tiger Woods (2001 and 2002) to secure consecutive green jackets. Only Jack Nicklaus (1965 and 1966) and Nick Faldo (1989 and 1990) have previously accomplished this remarkable feat.

The mythical hole in one

In total, there have been 34 holes-in-one recorded at Augusta National, with the majority, 24, occurring at the iconic 16th hole.

Only three have been achieved at the renowned 12th hole, with none occurring since 1988. 

Jeff Sluman holds the distinction of being the sole player to have scored an ace at the fourth hole.

Tommy Fleetwood was the last player to ace the 16th when he holed out from 170 yards with a seven iron in 2021.
