DeChambeau used a seven-iron from 179 yards and his ball landed well to the right of the pin before feeding down the slope and into the cup.
The American, who shared the first-round lead at Augusta National, reacted with understandable delight as he hugged his playing companion Takumi Kanaya.
It was the 21st ace at the hole during the Masters on the easiest of the par-threes, and the first this year.
“As a kid, I always wanted to compete against him and have the opportunity to ‑‑ you know, Ive dreamed of playing in the final group with him in a major championship, and it would be quite a cool thing for me if I were to play with him tomorrow in the final group of a Masters,” Finau said. “It would be a dream come true for me.”
The 16th pin was in its traditional Sunday position on the left-side of the green, where the slope helps feed balls towards the hole.
