Jon Rahm produced one of the greatest hole in one shots of all-time as he prepared for The Masters that gets underway at Augusta on Thursday.

The strange sight of an empty course made the moment a little less glorious for the Spaniard, yet the quality of his effort on the famous 16th hole was a sight to behold.

Skipping his ball across the water and allowing it to find its way onto the green, he found the perfect spot to allow the ball to roll into the hole, with the roar the shot deserved sadly missing.

Rahm will hope his moment of magic inspires him to win his first green jacket on Sunday and he admits he he dreaming of that moment.

"It would mean a lot, needless to say," he stated. "It's a special event for everybody who comes and competes at the Masters, and I would say there's such Spanish history of champions here, with three great champions and three idols of mine, that I would love to be able to add my name to that list.

"And especially this year, being a little bit sad that Sergio is not going to be able to be part of this. My heart goes out to him. I know he had some bad times with COVID, losing family members, and now he's got it as well. I wish him well.

"We have had five Spanish winers here, so hopefully I can be the sixth."
