John Ramm celebrated his 26th birthday with a stunning hole during training ahead of the Masters this week.
It’s typical for players to try to pass a ball across the pool through 16 Augusta National players during training.
The Spaniard’s tee shot took four jumps across the water and kicked toward the back of the leveling surface … before it feeds perfectly on the ramp and – yes – falls precisely into the hole on the right edge.
Delighted, Ram can be seen celebrating in Sky Sports footage with his arms in the air and some fives.
This wasn’t his first sighting this week. On Monday he hit the ace while training.
He has since tweeted: “Two holes in two days – happy birthday to me!”
Ram is the number two in the world, and he finished second in the top ten in his last two appearances in the Masters tournament.
He had previously spoken of his quest to become the fourth Spanish winner after Cif Ballesteros, Jose Maria Olzapal and Sergio Garcia.
“Needless to say, it’s a special event for everyone who comes and competes in the Masters, and I would say there is a Spanish history of champions here, with three great heroes and three idols for me, I’d like to add my name to that list.
“Especially this year, be a little sad because Sergio will not be able to be a part of this. My heart risks it. I know he has had some bad times with COVID, lost his family, and now it is.
“And the date is just, right. I think this is the 40th anniversary of my sword’s first win here in Augusta. You have my first, five green jackets going to Spain, and I hope I’m the sixth.”
