Sergio Garcia made a double bogey on the third hole at TPC Four Seasons on Sunday, but he did hit one incredible chip shot in the process.

The par-4 third hole at TPC Four Seasons Resort wasn't all that kind to Masters Champion Sergio Garcia on Sunday.

It wasn't all ugly though.

Check out the chip shot Garcia hit -- his fourth shot -- with his ball on the edge of a bunker, requiring him to set up with one foot in the bunker and one foot out of it:

 

 

Three feet from the hole. Now that was a solid play.

Unfortunately, Garcia would miss the putt and walk away with the double bogey.

Haotong Li

China's Haotong Li made an albatross during the final round of the European Tour's Rocco Forte Open in Italy on Sunday.

China's Haotong Li shot a 5-under 66 in the final round of the European Tour's Rocco Forte Open in Verdura, Sicily and tied for third, one shot out of a playoff at 13 under.

In the process of Sunday's round though, Li hit a shot he'll remember for a lifetime.

Playing the 569-yard, par-5 12th hole at Verdura Golf Club, Li hit a perfect drive. With a long iron for his second shot, Li knew he made great contact as soon as the ball was struck.

What he didn't know until well after hitting the shot is that it found the bottom of the cup for an albatross.

Here it is:

 

 

We've now seen an albatross in each of the last two weeks. Spain's Rafa Cabrera Bello recorded an albatross last Sunday in the final round of the Players Championship on the par-5 16th hole -- the first "2" on that hole in tournament history.
