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.

Awesome shot.

Of course, whenever we think of any kind of flop-shot -- especially of the backwards variety -- we think Phil Mickelson
