Corey Conners made the sixth hole-in-one on No. 6 in Masters history Saturday.
After birdies on holes 2 and 3 and a bogey on No. 5, Conners aced the par-3 sixth hole during Saturday’s third round to go to 5-under.
This downhill par-3 named Juniper usually requires no more than a medium iron to the large, undulating green. Put the ball on the wrong part of the green, however, and a three-putt is likely.
Conners’ shot landed short of the hole and rolled in for an ace, playing at 182-yards Saturday. It was the first in the Masters since 2013 on a hole other than No. 16.
