Augusta, GA. (NEXSTAR) — It’s a safe bet that the most impressive shot at the Masters this year won’t actually count on a tournament score card.

Pro golfer Jon Rahm, considered one of the favorites to claim the famed green jacket at the PGA’s signature event, has been sinking improbable shots during practice rounds this week.

On Monday, he posted a video showing himself celebrating a hole in one at Augusta National, a rare and impressive feat.

But then on Tuesday, he one-upped that accomplishment in a big way:

According to ESPN, attempting to skip to the green during practice par-3 16th hole is a tradition at the Masters. What’s not as common is the 15-second trickle across the green and in to the hole.

How can we explain the good fortune? Nov. 10 happens to be Rahm’s 26th birthday.
