Watch: Bryson DeChambeau narrowly misses hole-in-one, eagle
Bryson DeChambeau finished a great first day at the Masters on Thursday that saw him shoot six under for the round, but he’s probably thinking about what could have been.
DeChambeau nearly had a hole-in-one on the 172-yard par-3 16th hole. His 8-iron rolled inches past the hole:

He still ended up with a birdie on the hole. Then on the par 4 18th, DeChambeau nearly sank an eagle shot from 196 yards:

The flag stick was not kind to him. Upon watching the replay on ESPN, DeChambeau exclaimed, “Oh my gosh, I guess I should have pulled the flag stick!”
DeChambeau still birdied the final four holes and picked up six birdies overall on the back nine. He finished the round with an impressive six-under 66.
