While the spotlight was on Patrick Reed, Rory McIlroy and a hard-charging Jordan Spieth on Masters Sunday, Charley Hoffman was dazzling patrons and earning himself some crystal in the process with this ace on the 16th hole:

Hoffman's 6-iron from 178 yards found the bottom of the cup after landing just left of the flagstick, an unusual route to an ace on a hole that has given up 20 of them in Masters history.

Hoffman celebrated his hole-in-one like a wild man, although it was a little ironic doing it in front of playing partner Tony Finau, who injured his ankle on Wednesday while celebrating a hole-in-one during the Par 3 Contest.
