AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The roars at Augusta National Golf Club were somewhat muted on Friday and Saturday with just one player breaking 70 on either day. But less wind on Sunday -- and some traditional, fun pin placements, indicate we could be in for a lot more cheering in the final round. Case in point, the 16th hole.
First, Shane Lowry did this:
That made it an even 16 aces on No. 16 in Masters history. Until Davis Love III did this about 20 minutes later:
The pair of aces were the first of the tournament after a record nine were made in Wednesday's Par 3 Contest. They're also the latest example that Augusta National's back nine is there for the taking. Earlier on Sunday, French amateur Romain Langasque carded a 31. That's the low nine of the week. For now. . .
