Just minutes after Shane Lowry recorded the 16th hole-in-one at Augusta National's par-3 in Masters history, 51-year-old Davis Love III -- the 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup Captain -- canned No. 17 with a 7-iron from 181 yards.

Here it is:

 

This year is Love's 20th Masters (and possibly his last) and his first since 2011. Love qualified for the field thanks to his victory last August in the Wyndham Championship. He's a two-time runner-up in the season's first major.

Love's lone major win came in the 1997 PGA Championship at Winged Foot.
