Shane Lowry, Davis Love and Louis Oosthuizen created Masters history on Sunday with an extraordinary sequence of holes-in-one at Augusta National.

Lowry set the ball rolling by holing out with an eight iron on the par-three 16th and was followed just two groups later by Ryder Cup captain Love.

But the most remarkable ace was yet to come, with former Open champion Oosthuizen securing his thanks to a little assistance from playing partner JB Holmes.

Holmes' ball was around five feet from the flag when Oosthuizen's rolled down a slope on the green and knocked it past the hole, but that deflection took the South African's ball straight into the cup.

"I saw my ball pitch in a good spot to have a chance and then I saw JB's ball and I thought 'Oh there goes the chance of a one," Oosthuizen said.

"And then I just really watched the crowd and walking up there I could see one (ball) was in there obviously really close and the other one is in. So I was just hoping that it was my ball that was in and not JB's, because then neither of us would have a hole?in?one, he would have had to move his ball back.

"The way I played today, nothing was really happening, so it was nice to do that, to just have a bit of a better day."

Lowry jokingly motioned to throw his ball into the crowd after picking it out of the hole, but added: "No, I wasn't giving the ball away. My last hole?in?one in competition my parents were there as well in Dubai and I still have the ball from that. So I feel like I'll keep that one.

"I just hit it in right of the hole and (the slope) just took it down and in. I feel pretty lucky to have a hole?in?one around this place, in this tournament. It's nice. I'm sure I'll get a picture somewhere and frame it in the house and it will be a nice memento to have."
