Bubba Watson pulled off an incredible pitch shot on Wednesday thanks to the assist of a backstop on the back of a green.

Bubba Watson has been known on occasion to be pretty creative with his golf shots. Just kidding... he's always creative with shot selection.

On Wednesday, the two-time Masters champion posted a video to Instagram in which he hit a pitch shot way past a hole to a backstop.

The ball hits the backstop, rolls back, looks like it's going to stop several feet away from the hole, then trickles down and drops into the cup as Watson is right there to greet it.

Enjoy:

 

Wait for it... #urwelcome #sctop10

golf trick
As if skipping the ball across the pond wasn't difficult enough, check out how this duo finished off their trick shot.

If you're of the belief that trick shots have become annoying, we don't blame you.

However, you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't check out this effort. It is unbelievable.

A left-hander skips a golf ball across a pond and nails his target -- a paver. The ball bounces up in the air off the paver and another golfer on the other side of the pond crushes the ball out of mid-air.

Check it out here:

 

That was phenomenal. Wonder how many takes it took. Judging by the divots, it was at least a few... understandably.
