Ace move: Kuchar gives Masters hole-in-one ball to young fan

Kuchar's incredible shot moved him into a tie for third place on the leaderboard at the time.

However, it was Kuchar's actions after the hole in one that has drawn most praise. He signed the ball and handed it over to a young fan watching from the green, a moment the kid will likely never forget. But nobody had aced it - or any other hole on the course - until Kuchar knocked his tee shot in on Sunday.

"I got him the hat because I thought it might get him noticed for some autographs", said Owen's mother, Tracy. "Then Matt gave me the ball".

Sergio Garcia was crowned the Masters 2017 champion after a stunning performance, the Spaniard beating Justin Rose to finish nine under par.

The 16th hole typically provides the best chances for a hole-in-one. There is still a chance that Kuchar ends up winning The Masters, but he'll some help to get the Green Jacket. Last year, there were three aces there, and all of them occurred on Sunday.
