Martin Kaymer's water-skimming hole in one


If everyone on earth agreed to ban golf, we'd be up for it. We play the sport, don't get us wrong, but enjoyment levels, inversely proportionate to skill levels, are almost entirely very low.

Someone enjoying their golf, though, is former world no. 1 Martin Kaymer. When taking part in the practice round for The Masters at the Augusta National course yesterday, he scored a spectacular hole-in-one.

The 170-yard hole requires the players to hit an iron shot over a lake and onto the green. Kaymer managed to not only skim the ball across the water and onto the green, but straight in.
