Ireland's Shane Lowry produced the first Masters hole-in-one at the 16th hole in four years on Sunday when he aced it in the final round at Augusta National.

Lowry's 8-iron tee shot landed center green and took the slope left to dive into the hole.

It was the 16th ace at the 170-yard 16th and came in the year 2016.

And it brought the total number of holes-in-one at the Masters to 25 since the tournament was first played in 1934.

The previous Masters hole-in-one at 16 was by Bo Van Pelt in 2012. The most recent prior ace was by Welshman Jamie Donaldson on the sixth in 2013.

The ace took Lowry to 10-over for the tournament.
