There's no "rough" at Pinehurst No. 2 for the 114th U.S. Open this week (we're calling it "native area" instead), but it's hard to imagine one could hit a better shot than this one by Kenny Perry on Saturday in the third round at the 473-yard, par-4 14th:

What an eagle! With a hybrid from the native area no less.

Perry, 53, is the oldest player in the field this week. He's playing on an exemption that he earned by winning the 2013 U.S. Senior Open.

So far, that's the best shot of the tournament.
