Not only did this shot give Bubba Watson an eagle, but it also forced a playoff at the HSBC Champions that he would go on to win. All of this came after he saw his two-shot lead with three holes fade away. 

Here's the video of Watson's shot: 

The shot is even more impressive when you consider that he had to stop his swing on his first attempt when a camera distracted him. 

This isn't the first incredible shot we've seen from Bubba at Shanghai. During the third round, Watson nearly carded an albatross on the eighth hole. He missed that by inches but then had to settle for birdie after two putting.
