Watson aces 16th on Wednesday

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Too bad he didn't save it for one of the four days of competition at the Masters.

If Bubba Watson had holed that 9-iron at the 16th hole on Thursday instead of during Wednesday's practice round, he would have carted home a large crystal bowl. Interestingly, Watson has never made a hole-in-one at a PGA TOUR event.

Of course, Watson did earn the much more coveted Green Jacket last year when he beat Louis Oosthuizen on the second hole of sudden death. He also got to keep a sterling silver replica of the Masters Trophy and the gold medal that goes to the winner.

Watson has five pairs of crystal goblets, too -- but none of his eagles came last year. And he did earn a crystal vase for shooting the low round of the day, a 67 in the third round in 2011
