The route that this ball took to find the bottom of the cup for a Lee Westwood eagle was pretty cool.

Hole-outs are just so much fun to watch.

But, let's face it -- some are a lot cooler than others.

My favorite? The slam-dunk. But, this dancer of an eagle by Lee Westwood from a fairway bunker on Friday in the second round of the Shell Houston Open is of the "a close second" variety for me:

 

That was from 104 yards out on the par-4 10th hole at the Golf Club of Houston, the same hole where Phil Mickelson chipped in for birdie to start his round on Thursday.

Westwood shot a 1-under 71 in the second round and at 2 under, was hovering below the projected cut line at the time of this post.
