Matt Kuchar comes ridiculously close to ace on TPC Scottsdale’s 16th hole


Matt Kuchar is always a favorite with the fans, and he didn’t disappoint on Super Bowl Sunday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. On the famed stadium 16th hole, “Kuch” came unbelievably close to an ace, which would have sent the crowd into a frenzy.

As the ball landed and rolled on the green, you thought it was going in, until it stopped just short. I’m sure every fan watching nearly fell to the floor as that thing felt short, as it would’ve been the first ace on 16 since Francesco Molinari got one in 2015. Molinari, as we know, is one of the more accurate golfers on the PGA Tour for years.


But, Kuch came as close as anyone to adding to the ace total at 16. He already grabbed one on the 16th at The Masters in 2017, so he would’ve gotten two in a two-year stretch, on two iconic holes.

The borderline Hall of Famer has never been flashy but always manages to thrill in some shape or form. This, all while having a smile on his face, and as you can expect, he had a playful reaction to the near ace.


Well played Kuch. Maybe next year, we’ll see someone break the three-year drought.
