PGA Tour golfer Martin Kaymer scored one of the most unique holes-in-one in golf history during a practice round at Augusta National during a practice round for the Masters this weekend.

On Monday he attempted to skip his drive all the way up the lake on the 16th hole at Augusta, known as Rosebud. Skipping balls up the lake has become a tradition at Masters Practice rounds, but not many of the attempts end with the ball rolling into the cup.

 Kaymer is not the first man to ever hole out on a skip shot at the 170-yard par-3, Vijay Singh accomplished it three years ago, but the video for Kaymer's ace is just as interesting and compelling to watch.

Kaymer was the world's top ranked golfer for an eight-week period in 2011 but has now fallen to sixth. Despite his high ranking, don't expect him to be much of a factor in this year's Masters. The German has teed it up for the past four Masters and has never made a cut.
