Masters 2017: Watch William McGirt expertly use the slope to make birdie from a bunker

Have yourself a Masters, William McGirt. 

The Masters rookie finished the first round at 3-under for sole possession of second place. And his second round is off to a great start as well.

After getting a birdie on the second hole and a par on three, McGirt drove his tee shot on four into the bunker in front of the green. That's when he pulled out the magic, blasting past the pin and using the slope to feed the ball right into the cup for another birdie. As always at Augusta, the best play is often away from the hole.

Not a bad way to start off a Friday at the Masters.
