(CNN)He was having a poor opening round of the Masters, but in one fell swoop, that all changed for Tommy Fleetwood.

In the most famous setting, the Englishman made a dramatic hole-in-one at the par-three 16th on Thursday to shoot him up the leaderboard at Augusta.

Traveling over the pond and avoiding the bunkers that surround the green, Fleetwood's ball carefully dissected all obstacles to bounce a few times before finding the hole.

Fleetwood, who shot to prominence after his friendship with Francesco Molinari during the Ryder Cup, had a relieved look on his face as he lifted his arms aloft in celebration in synchronicity with the fans upon seeing his ball drop in.

And it's becoming an expensive habit for the 30-year-old as it is tradition for any golfer who hits a hole-in-one to buy a drink for all his fellow players.

There had been 22 hole-in-ones in the history of Augusta and Fleetwood made it 23 with his remarkable effort.
