Jon Rahm is good at golf.

There’s not much of an argument there, but after the No. 2 ranked player’s last great shot, there’s absolutely no denying it.

While there’s no par 3 contest at The Masters this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the golfers still enjoy themselves during their practice rounds leading up to Thursday.

One of the mainstays is trying to skip a golf ball across the pond and get as close as possible to the pin on the par-3 16th hole at Augusta National.

On Tuesday, former Arizona State Sun Devil Rahm bested all challengers who entered before him.

Skipping the ball not once, not twice, but three times, Rahm found the far right side of the green. From there, the ball took off right-to-left, riding the slope near the top of the green before falling straight downhill and into the cup.

Oh yeah, it was on his 26th birthday, too. What a hole-in-one to celebrate with.

But wait there’s more.

That’s not even Rahm’s first hole-in-one of the week!

On Monday, Rahm dropped in an ace on No. 14 from about 225 yards out. His playing partner? Rickie Fowler, the same golfer he played with on Tuesday.

“Easy, won’t happen again,” Rahm said in the Instagram post.

That’s what you thought, Rahm.

Here’s to having it happen during the actual tournament.
