— -- Augusta National's 16th hole had only given up 15 holes-in-one since The Masters was established in 1934, but today the best golfers in the world were dialed in during the final round of the 2016 tournament.

Shane Lowry got the fireworks started on the 16th with an 8-iron shot that bounced perfectly on the green and broke to the left and rolled into the center of the hole.

Not much later, Davis Love III took his tee shot just a tad past the hole, but the ball took a turn toward the water, and the hole, and found the left side of the cup.

Louis Oosthuizen saved the best dramatics for the final hole-in-one on the 16th. His shot on the par 3, 181-yard hole appeared to be on track when it hit the ball of his playing partner, J.B. Holmes, on the green. Both balls continued to roll towards the hole. Holmes’ ball just missed to the left, but Oosthuizen's shot, and history, was not to be denied as it found its way home.

It’s the first time ever there has been three aces at one hole in a Masters round.
