He missed the cut in that year, but in his recent appearances he has fared much better.

In 2019 he made the cut and finished T46th and in the 2020 Masters held in November he secured a T10th finish.

He's come into the Masters in some good form too, despite not defending his Valero Texas Open title last weekend.

His 9th place finish at The Player Championship in March was his best ever at that tournament.

Corey Conners Makes Hole In One

It is just the sixth hole-in-one in history at the Masters on the famous 6th hole.

The most popular hole at Augusta National for a hole-in-one is the 16th and, with its famous Sunday pin position, has had 23 hole-in-ones.

The other pars threes at Augusta, the 4th, 6th and 12th holes have also had very few hole outs in the Masters.

The 6th hole has seen just five hole-in-ones, the beautiful 12th hole has only seen three hole-in-ones and the 4th has only ever had one hole out in its Masters history - Jeff Sulman making history in 1992 with a 4-iron.
