UNLV’s Charley Hoffman hits hole-in-one at the Masters

Updated April 8, 2018 - 3:55 pm

Charley Hoffman made a hole-in-one at the Masters on Sunday in Augusta, Ga.

The former UNLV golfer flirted with the bunker left of the 16th green, only to catch a fortuitous kick that sent the ball right into the hole.

It was the third consecutive year that there’s been at least one ace at the 170-yard hole known as Redbud.

Matt Kuchar had a hole-in-one in 2017, while three players did it in 2016.

Patrick Reed won the Masters on Sunday. It was his first major championship, with a thrilling one-shot victory over Rickie Fowler.
