Masters 2023: Watch Tiger Woods, Tom Kim, Rory McIlroy and Fred Couples pull off the rare quad skip at Augusta National’s 16th hole

No one out-traditions Augusta National. There’s the Champions Dinner. There’s the Par-3 Contest. There’s green jackets and pimento cheese. Hell, it’s right there in the catchphrase:

A tradition unlike any other.

But of all the time-honored favorites and quirky habits at the Masters, nothing is a bigger crowd pleaser than the annual pond skip. Each and every year, players take to the 16th hole to test their nautical mettle. The results vary from the sublime to the ridiculous, but never have we seen a foursome tee it up (simultanouesly, we might add) quite like the one we saw on Monday. Take it away, fellas.

Left to right, that’s Tom Kim, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Fred Couples. That’s one heck of a barbershop quartet, folks. A trident of golf royalty and a guy who once split his pants at the President’s Cup. You can’t ask for more than that … well, except for one of them to find the green. Come on, boys. We expect a little more than that come Thursday.
