World Number Two Golfer Jon Rahm Makes Incredible Hole-In-One Skimming Ball Off Water

World Number Two Golfer Jon Rahm Makes Incredible Hole-In-One Skimming Ball Off Water

Golf's world number two Jon Rahm wowed fans - and himself - after putting an incredible hole-in-one.

Water hazards are the bane of every golfer's life, but the Spaniard decided to use it to his advantage and skim the ball across the pond at the 16th hole of the Augusta National.

OK, so it was during practice, but it was still pretty amazing - and it was his birthday, too.

In a clip that's now been shared widely on social media, the 26-year-old can be seen lining up his tee shot at the par three.

And while most players would try to get the ball over the water, Rahm seemingly thought that looked too easy, so decided to send his ball into the pond instead.

And, sure enough, it sails effortlessly across, skimming a couple of times before landing onto the green and curving all the round and into the hole.

Rahm later took to Twitter to share his own amazement.

Retweeting the clip, he said: "Two hole-in-one's in two days - Happy Birthday to me!"

One person said: "I'm an ok golfer (I'd rather be fishing) but I'm amazed when I can hit one that even gets on the green on a par 3. What Jon Rahm does here might be the most amazing thing I've ever seen."

"This isn't what happens when I hit the ball into the water, unfortunately," joked another.

A third put: "The most amazing hole-in-one you will ever see by John Rahm in his practice round at Augusta National."

While another added: "Whoever Jon Rahm is sunk the most amazing hole-in-one I have ever seen in my life....like how tf was that even possible?"

Earlier this year, another sporting great also showed off his skills on the golf course.

Gareth Bale is better known for putting the ball in the back of the net rather than the hole, but he is a very keen golfer and clearly puts a lot of time in on the course.

Back in July, the Welsh footie star managed to hit the ball at the downslope where it gently curved around and went into the hole. Nicely done.
