VIDEO: Martin Kaymer Skips Pond, Makes Hole-In-One At Augusta

The No. 16 hole at Augusta National is a popular spot during practice rounds on Monday and Tuesday before the tournament. One of the Masters traditions involves golfers stepping to the front of the tee box and skipping golf balls across the pond and onto the green where every now and then something amazing will happen.

Vijay Singh was the only golfer that was known to have skipped a ball across the water, up onto the green and down the slope into the cup for a hole-in-one. Martin Kaymer joined that select group on Monday as his shot skipped across the water and up onto the green where it eventually found nothing but cup. Of course this story would be nothing but a story without video evidence.
