Dutch golfer Joost Luiten might not be a household name in the U.S. And, if he went by his full name -- Willibrordus Adrianus Maria Luiten -- he might never be a household name anywhere.

But on Friday, during the second round of the European Tour's Volvo Golf Champions tournament in Durban, South Africa, Luiten hit what will certainly be the best shot you see all day, if not all week.

Playing Durban Country Club's 580-yard, par-5 10th hole, Luiten holed his second shot from the fairway for a rare albatross.

The 28-year-old Luiten is a three-time winner on the European Tour.
