Some people are so talented that it’s incomprehensible.
Meet Jon Rahm—number 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking and currently participating in the 2020 Master’s Tournament.
And he just made sunk a shot by skipping his golf ball across the water.

Actually, no. Not casual at all.
How the HECK did he accomplish that?

I mean..wtf? Wow.

The luckiest golf shot EVER!

Man I wish there were people there. Place would have been going nuts.

That must be, without any question, the greatest hole in one in history. I'd like to see a better one.

Apparently it’s Masters practice round tradition to try skipping the ball across the pond at this particular hole (hole 16 at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia), but it’s only happened three times in the last 11 years.

How unorthodox is skipping the ball on top of the water like that? I’ve never seen it in highlights before but I’ll admit I don’t follow golf.

That's got to be the best golf shot ever right?

Sublime! Great way to celebrate your 26th b’day. 🎉👏🏻
Also, anyone ever seen the hole cut that far back on 16 before?

And the times that the ball does skip across the pond, it’s very rare for it to get onto the green and then to make it into the hole.
This is the craziest golf shot I've ever seen. https://t.co/cCKsfOF0UH

Rahm is a rising star. In 2018, he came in 4th place in the Masters tournament. The Spaniard recently shared that he was feeling “pretty confident” about his chances this year.
He told Fox Sports:
“I’ve been putting in the work and golfing well. Hopefully something special happens this weekend.”
And just like that, something special did happen.
