“Yeah, pretty nice birthday present,” said Rahm, who turned 26 on Tuesday. “Can’t complain. Hit my normal tee shot to two feet and then skipped it and made it, which is the craziest thing, the second hole-in-one of the week.”

It was Rahm’s second ace this week after he made a hole-in-one on the fourth hole on Monday. 

“Well, yesterday it was on 4, I hit a 5 iron, and we didn’t know it went in. A couple of people on the green, and we didn’t know until we basically got to the green. But the one on 16 today was visible, so very different. You don’t see people skipping it and actually hitting it on the green very often, and to make it to that back pin, clearly, we were all pretty shocked.”

However, Rahm said he isn’t counting the skip ace in his career aggregate. 

“The one on 16 doesn’t really count as an ace. With the one on 4 yesterday, that’s four. Two in competition,” he said.
