Jon Rahm is the only amateur in the field to make the cut at this year's U.S. Open, earning a third round pairing with Bubba Watson.

Watson is the one known for spectacular shots, but he had to give it up for the two-time Ben Hogan award winner after he spun his approach on the par-5 12th hole and made it disappear in the hole.

Rahm is currently ranked as the number one amateur player in the world, and continues to show flashes of brilliance at Oakmont.

Have you ever holed out from the fairway? How far away was it?
