UPDATE: We've been told this was actually an "albatross" -- a 2 on a par 5, not a par 6 as initially reported. Still incredibly impressive.I'll be the first to admit: There's not a lot I know about disc golf.

But what I do know is what my eyes tell me. My eyes are telling me that this "double albatross" -- a 2 on a par 6 -- from 850 feet by Philo Brathwaite in the Professional Disc Golf Association's 2016 Beaver State Fling might be one of the most impressive things I've ever seen.

Check it out (h/t BroBible):


Are you kidding me with that "fling?"


And just to be clear -- I'm not even sure a "double albatross" is a thing. I think I just made it up. What do you call something that's even more rare than the rarest of birds?
