Apparently the LPGA's HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore has a thing for unbelievable golf shots.

Last year, Paula Creamer famously holed a 75-foot eagle putt to win the tournament in a playoff. Earlier this week, she successfully recreated that putt in a promotion for the event.

On Thursday during the first round of the tournament, Lexi Thompson snagged an eagle of her own... but this one wasn't a "3" on a par 5. Instead, it was a hole-in-one on the par-3 14th hole, a 153-yarder, at Sentosa Golf Club's Serapong Course.

 

You know it's a great shot when the player is giving it the stare down the entire time.
