With all eyes focused on the Ryder Cup over the weekend, you may have missed another great piece of drama that happened thousands of miles away at Pebble Beach in the Nature Valley First Tee Open on the Champions Tour.

Juniors golfers are selected from across the country to compete in the tournament alongside a Champions Tour player as their mentor.

On the final hole Sunday, trailing by a shot in the pro-junior competition, 17-year-old Christopher Meyers from The First Tee of Tucson did something he'll never forget on Pebble Beach's world famous par-5 18th hole.

Needing a birdie to force a playoff, Meyers -- headed to Stanford next year -- did two better: he made an albatross for the walk-off win.
