It has become a tradition for players to try to slide the ball across the pond before par 16 at Augusta National before the tournament.
Not only did Rahm manage to take the 224-yard shot across the water and land it on the green, but he also managed to find the hole at the same time.

Cream shot four times over the water with a pentangle before rolling over the green and turning back into the hole.
Although there were many fans who couldn't celebrate his performance, Rahm was still delighted with his shot.
Rahm, who finished in the top 10 in each of his last two Masters appearances, celebrated with his caddy before continuing to train with Rickie Fowler and Brendon Todd.
The world number two previously spoke about what it would mean for him to become the fourth Spanish winner after Seve Ballesteros, Jose Maria Olazabal and Sergio Garcia.

"It would mean a lot," he said.
“Needless to say, it is a special event for anyone attending the Masters and I would say there is such a Spanish history of champions here, with three great champions and three of my idols that I would like to add My name on this list.
“And especially this year, a little sad that Sergio won't be able to be a part of it. My heart goes out to him. I know he had some bad times with COVID and lost family members, and now he has too.
& # 39; And just the story, right. I think this is the 40th anniversary of Seve's first win here in Augusta. You have Ollie, five green jackets are going to Spain, hopefully I can be the sixth. & # 39;
