At age 3, Austin Snedeker already looks like a future long drive champion.
 
Brandt Snedeker and his family are out at Kapalua this week for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, and his son Austin just couldn't wait to kick off 2016 with a few cuts himself.
 
Austin, 3, is a lefty, and as you can see in the short video below, he's already got a full swing and some serious power off the tee. We especially like how he holds his finish.
 
 
Austin's dad qualified for the Tournament of Champions by virtue of his victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February, and won the Franklin Templeton Shootout with partner Jason Dufner less than a month ago. Judging by that swing, Austin just might collect some trophies of his own down the road. 
 
Here's his swing. Check it out:

Shane Lowry's shot at the WGC Bridgestone Classic was named the European Tour's 2015 Shot of the Year.

Remember the miraculous shot Shane Lowry hit through the trees on the 18th hole at the WGC Bridgestone Classic that landed on the green?

Fans of the European Tour certainly did, as they selected that as the 2015 Shot of the Year.

In case your memory needs refreshing, here it is again:

 

 

Haven't we all wanted to hit one just like that, just to say we did it? And how many times have we tried it, only to be disappointed. "Ninety percent air," my foot.
