Conners became the second golfer this weekend to make a hole-in-one. Tommy Fleetwood was the first to accomplish the feat when he did it on No. 16 in the first round.

There have only been 33 aces in Masters history dating back to 1934. The last hole-in-one on the sixth hole prior to Saturday was when Jamie Donaldson did it in 2013.

Justin Rose currently leads the tournament with a score of eight under par.
