HITTING a hole in one at any golf course is a pretty special moment.

Whether it's a round of crazy golf on the Cornwall coast or the clinching moment of a great professional triumph, it is the pinnacle of the sport.

But there is arguably no greater place to sink a hole in one than during the Masters in Augusta.

Only a select handful of the world's top pros have pulled off the feat - with plenty of near misses haunting those not fortunate enough to be on the list.

In practice for the 2020 tournament, Jon Rahm hit perhaps the greatest hole in one ever caught on camera.

The Spaniard skipped his ball over the water at the 16th, before reaching the green and curving it gently into the hole.

Should he pull off the same trick twice, a unique crystal bowl will be his with the engraved trophy handed out to anyone who hits a perfect shot in the tournament.

Here, SunSport details those who have sunk the most precious hole in one of them all.

HOLE 4

5

No player has ever hit a hole in one at the current layout of Hole 4.

Now an intimidating 240-yard stretch at the mercy of the elements, it was a 213-yard perfect shot that Jeff Sluman pulled off in 1992.

He said: “It’s such a difficult golf hole. The wind’s blowing everywhere. You make three there, you’re walking to the next tee happy.”

The American led after day one but slipped back quickly, recovering to a respectable tie for fourth.

HOLE 6

5

A legendary hole in one came courtesy of amateur golfer Billy Joe Paton in 1954.

He led for an impressive two rounds before hitting a hole in one at the sixth, with Leland Gibson also sinking a perfect shot that year.

Both shots came from 190 yards while the last man to pull it off, Jamie Donaldson, hit from 173 yards in 2013.

Stars used to hit over a stream placed in front of the green but that has since been replaced by a bunker.

HOLE 12

5

Technically the shortest hole on the course, Hole 12 tests golfers' ability to guide their ball through unpredictable winds and steep banking that will send any errant shot into the water.

Nailing a hole in one here, at the heart of Amen's Corner, is a heroic act that only three men have pulled off during a Masters.

Claude Harmon, father of Tiger Woods' and Phil Mickleson's former coach Butch, sunk the first hole in one in 1947. William Hyndman, an amateur, pulled one off in 1959 with a six-iron.

But no pro has managed to match him since 1988 when Curtis Strange landed a perfect shot before graciously picking his ball out the cup - and lobbing it in Rae's Creek.

HOLE 16

5

Fans watching this year's tournament hoping for a hole in one should definitely keep an eye on Hole 16.

A whopping 22 golfers from Ian Poulter to Matt Kuchar have sunk one from the tee here.

Many fancy Bryson Dechambeau to challenge for the title in 2020 and the American, along with Justin Thomas, hit a hole in one at the 16th last year.

Trevor Immelman managed the feat in 2005 and said afterwards: "For that shot to go in, it was like a dream come true. It’s something I’ll never forget."
