Jon Rahm made one of the most incredible shots in golf history at Augusta National Golf Club 16, where he hit a hole in one rarely seen. In par 3 he made the ball touch the water three times and then take the descent from the green perfectly and reach its destination.
A new edition of the Masters begins on Thursday and there is much expectation for what Tiger Woods, Bryson DeChambeau or the Spanish author of this great play can do. What is clear is that it will be very difficult for someone to overcome what Rahm did in the previous one.
Instead of trying the logic of approaching and then looking for the birdie, the world number 2 took advantage of the fact that there was not much at stake to make an attempt with a very high degree of difficulty, but that after a masterful execution it did not take long to travel the world. Experts say that only Vijay Singh, Martin Kaymer and Lois Oosthuizen had been able to make a similar play throughout history.
There are only a few hours left for the start of the Masters, which will have two South American representatives. On the one hand, the young Abel Gallegos (Argentina), who qualified for having won the Latin America Amateur Championship, and on the other Sebastián Muñoz (Colombia), who won the Sanderson Farms Championship. Joaquín Niemann (Chile) had obtained his place, but he will not be able to participate due to having tested positive for Covid-19.
