Nobody to have won the Par 3 Contest at the Masters has ever gone on to wear Augusta’s famous Green Jacket.

That is a trend Jimmy Walker will be hoping to break after the American was one of a record nine players to shoot holes-in-one on his way to winning the warmup competition Wednesday.

The previous best was five aces shot in 2002.

Rickie Fowler, one of the favorites to win the year’s first major, also got in on the act, along with 2015 British Open champion Zach Johnson and nine-time major winner Gary Player.

Below, watch all nine holes-in-one.
