If you were glued to your TV all weekend watching the NFL Playoffs, chances are you missed what will undoubtedly be one of the best bunker shots on the PGA Tour this year.
Canada's Nick Taylor, who punched his ticket to the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Maui by virtue of his win at the Sanderson Farms Championship in November, found himself staring what looked likely to be a bogey at best square in the eyes on the 170-yard, par-3 11th hole at Kapalua's Plantation Course in the third round on Sunday.
Taylor's tee shot found a tiny bunker well right of the green, leaving a difficult play from the sand and little green to work with.
Taylor expertly splashed the ball out of the sand and proceeded to watch it roll in center-cut for one of the coolest birdies you'll ever see.
In fact, analyst Johnny Miller called it: "One of the best bunker shots I've seen in a year."
If Johnny says that, you know it's special.
Here's the footage:
Taylor shot a 1-under 72 in Round 3 and his tied for 27th at 5 under, 12 strokes behind co-leaders Jimmy Walker and Hideki Matsuyama going into today's final round.
