Ryan Moore: The First to Make an Ace at Augusta Wearing a Tie Since the Days of Bobby Jones
By Stephanie Wei under General

With three holes left to play at the 2010 Masters, Ryan Moore knocked his tee shot into the cup on the 16th, making him the first to make an ace while sporting a tie in a long, long time. (He wore four different renditions of the button-up-shirt-sweater-cardigan-tie get-up.) Moore eventually finished with a four-under 68 and T14, which qualifies him for next year’s Masters. Had he not carded the 1, he would have finished 17th, one place out of clinching the spot in 2011.

I’m sure he’s smiling quietly to himself. Now, the video of the big hole-in-one:
