Nicolas Colsaerts executes awesome backwards flop shot

Touring professionals truly are magicians.

Belgium's Nicolas Colsaerts -- most well-known for his massive drives and being a member of the rallying 2012 European Ryder Cup team at Medinah -- provided the latest example on Wednesday.

Playing in a pro-am ahead of the European Tour's Made in Denmark tournament, the "Belgian Bomber" wowed spectators with an incredible backwards flop shot.

Colsaerts stepped into a bunker, back to hole, placed a ball in the rough just above the lip of the step bunker and then gave a mighty lash at the ball. It went straight up in the air, well over Colsaerts' head and dropped onto the green.
