Watch: Charley Hoffman Makes A Hole In One On The 16th Hole At Augusta

Charley Hoffman hasn’t had the best of luck at the business end of tournaments.

Often leading events after the first round, the 41-year-old has struggled to convert those good starts into wins, with his good play often fading at the weekend.

While still a long way from contending with the likes of Patrick Reed atop the leaderboard, Hoffman had a magical moment at the famous 16th hole of Augusta National to cherish for the rest of his career.

The popular Californian was already -3 for his final round, and approached the 178 yarder with a six iron, landing it on a slope between the bunker and the hole. The rest, as they say, is history.

Far be it from us to use a wretched, tired cliche, but perhaps the luck of the Irish was on Hoffman’s side, with a Kerryman spotted lending support to Charley on the 16th tee.

Luckily, there was no repeat of Tony Finau’s ankle troubles, which occurred during the par three contest on Wednesday when he made a similar ace in front of his family, getting him understandably excited and leading to this.
