Former Florida Gators golfer Camillo Villegas had himself a day on Wednesday, dropping in a pair of holes-in-one – on No. 4 and No. 8 – during the 2015 Masters Par 3 Contest at Augusta National.
Villegas now has three aces in the last five days, as he also registered a hole-in-one on the 14th hole at The Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Florida, on Saturday.

Beginning Thursday, Villegas will be participating in his sixth Masters.
In five prior Masters appearances, he has missed the cut twice (2007-08) only to finish T13 in 2009. Villegas checked in at T38 in 2010 and 49th in 2011, the last time he qualified to play at Augusta National.
Villegas earned a spot in the 2015 Masters by winning the Wyndham Championship in August. He found himself in a playoff with Kevin Streelman for the Par 3 Contest crown on Wednesday, but Streelman wound up winning on the third playoff hole. Therefore, Villegas remains in contention to win the big tournament considering no victor in the Par 3 Contest has ever gone on to win the Masters.
