Fowler, Thomas make back-to-back aces during Par 3

RSS

You know the phrase: "Anything you can do, I can do better..."

Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas put that old adage to the test Wednesday during the Masters Par-3 contest, holing back-to-back aces on the fourth hole.

Thomas was first on the tee and his shot delighted the crowds, only to be followed immediately after by Fowler's ace that created an even more raucous celebration:

The third member of the group was defending champion Jordan Spieth, who was unable to match their aces and was in the rare position (these days, anyway) of being overshadowed by his playing competitors.

"It might have been the hardest shot I've ever had to hit, trying to follow them," Spieth said. "To see Justin make it in his first time here, and Rickie after that ... it was fun to be a spectator today."

Thomas and Fowler authored two of nine holes-in-one on the day, marking the highest single-day total in the contest's 56-year history.
