Stewart Cink makes a hole-in-one at the par-3 16th, the 24th ace at No. 16 in tournament history (most recent: Tommy Fleetwood, 2021).<br><br>With his sixth, Cink is tied for eighth-most holes-in-one on the PGA TOUR since the TOUR began tracking hole-by-hole data in 1983.<a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/theMasters?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#theMasters</a>

No. 16 played at 166 yards on Friday. No one had gotten an ace at all in this year's Masters until Cink did so in the second round.

It was a special moment for Cink, as his son, Reagan, is caddying for him.

The 48-year-old Cink is a 15-time winner as a pro golfer, with his most notable victory occurring at the 2009 Open Championship in a playoff with Tom Watson. The Alabama native has seven top-20 finishes at the Masters, including a tie for 12th in 2021.
