Watch Matt Kuchar’s Amazing 16th Hole Ace on Masters Sunday

by Maura Hutchinson

Matt Kuchar might not have claimed the Green Jacket on Sunday but as the top American in the field he dazzled the crowd on the 16th with one incredible ace during the final round.

As the Augusta fans went wild Kuchar collected his ball, signed it and handed it to what has to be the luckiest kid on the planet. Owen Lockaby was enjoying his first trip to the Masters (we’re already super jealous of the 8 year-old!) alongside his mum and dad when he was handed the souvenir of a lifetime.

“The cool part of our job is making a kid’s day,” Kuchar, a seven-time PGA Tour winner explained afterwards. “I’ve got enough hole-in-one balls.” Adding, “He was sitting in the front row and had the Sam Snead hat on and I said, ‘That’s the kid I’m giving it to.”
