Golf is a love-it-or-hate-it type of sport. Some find it the perfect way to relax on the weekend, while for others, it’s a slow, boring game of swing, watch, and walk.
What both avid golfers and avoid golf-avoiders can agree on, though, is that Spanish golfer Jon Rahm may have landed the coolest golf shot in history.
Rahm was warming up for the Masters tournament on Tuesday, which happened to be his 26th birthday. He decided to participate in a fun tradition in which players try to skim a ball across one of the ponds at Augusta National while practicing. Such a feat seems tricky enough, but Rahm went a step further.
You see, Rahm didn’t just manage to artfully skim the ball as though it were a smooth, flat stone — he also got to watch as the ball hit the green, then swung around and dropped perfectly into the hole. Yep, this well-executed trick shot turned out to be a perfect shot and a hole-in-one on Rahm’s birthday.
As though the shot couldn’t get any more unbelievable, this marked Rahm’s second hole-in-one in two days — he’d earned the first one the day prior.
It’s one of those moments in sports that you don’t have to fully understand in order to appreciate (though we can imagine an extensive knowledge of golf just makes it all the more impressive).
