Tiger Woods was on a tear through the final round of the Masters on Sunday, and at the par-3 No. 16, Olympic champion Michael Phelps had a front-row seat.
Woods was shooting with a 1-stroke lead from the tee box at the par-3 No. 16, and hit an absolutely brilliant shot that landed on the green and started spinning towards the pin.
While the ace would miss by inches, the shot was enough to send the crowd at Augusta National into hysterics.
