Rickie Fowler makes 66-foot par putt

Rickie Fowler steals a par at the Masters with 66-foot putt

It's always nice when you feel like you stole a stroke from the golf course. Especially in a major.

And that's exactly what Rickie Fowler did on the sixth green at Augusta National Golf Club in the second round of the Masters on Friday.

Fowler was in trouble on the par-3 hole, missing the green with his tee shot and then just barely getting onto the green with his second. 

But, he managed to ram home a 66-foot par putt to get to stay at 2 under and one shot off the lead at the time.

Here's the putt: 

You're not supposed to make them from that range.

In 32 major championship starts, Fowler has eight top-10 finishes. 

His best Masters finish is a T5 in 2014 -- a season where he was the only player with top-5 finishes in each of the four majors.
