Cink it! Stewart Cink drops in an ace at the 2022 Masters

Apr 8, 2022, 3:06 PM

He may be projected to miss the cut, but Stewart Cink had a shot to remember in Round 2 of the 2022 Masters on Friday.

The PGA pro knocked in a hole-in-one on No. 16. It marks the first ace at the Masters since Tommy Fleetwood did it on the same hole in 2021.

It’s a memorable moment during a not-so-memorable round for Cink.

Cink, who fired a Round 1 four-over mark of 76, was struggling to find consistency in the back half of his second round.

After recording just one bogey over the first 10 holes, Cink rank into trouble on Nos. 11 and 12, recording a double bogey and bogey, respectively.

He managed to get a shot back on No. 13, however, knocking in a birdie on the 13th hole.

Cink followed it up with a par and yet another bogey before dropping in an ace on the par-3, 170-yard 13th hole.

Unfortunately for the pro, he followed up the hole-in-one with a bogey on No. 17 before finishing the round with a par on No. 18 for a three-over 75.

It marks the 24th hole-in-one in Masters history.
