Masters 2018: Webb Simpson joins exclusive list with back-to-back eagles

Published on

In the final round of the Masters on Sunday, Webb Simpson did something that had only been done three times prior in tournament history: he made back-to-back eagles.

Simpson, who won the 2012 U.S. Open at Olympic Club, holed a shot from 166 yards out on the par-4 seventh hole for his first eagle.

He followed it up at the par-5 eighth by holing a pitch shot that hit the flagstick and dropped in the cup:

That's 4-under par in two holes... and four nice, crystal goblets -- a pair for each of those eagles.

Dan Pohl (1982, third round), Dustin Johnson (2009, final round) and Phil Mickelson (2010, third round) -- all on holes 13 and 14 -- are the only other players in Masters history with back-to-back eagles.
