Bryson DeChambeau aces 16th hole in final round at the Masters
American golfer records 21st hole-in-one at the 16th in tournament history
Bryson DeChambeau picked a good time for the first hole-in-one of his career when he aced the par-three 16th in the final round at the Masters on Sunday.
DeChambeau used a seven-iron from 180 yards and his ball landed well to the right of the pin before feeding down the slope and into the cup.

The American, who shared the first-round lead at Augusta National, reacted with understandable delight as he hugged his playing companion Takumi Kanaya.
By contrast, there has only ever been one hole-in-one at the fourth, by Jeff Sluman in 1992.
The 16th pin was in its traditional Sunday position on the left-side of the green, where the slope helps feed balls towards the hole.
