Is this the best bunker shot ever?

Powered by National Club Golfer

Most players are happy to get up and down to save par when they find themselves in a bunker.

Patrick Reed is not most players.

The American was just off the pace going down the stretch at Lake Malaren in the final round of the BMW Masters.

After finding the sand with his second shot to the par-5 15th the Ryder Cup star had 100 yards to the flag.

At this stage you are thinking birdie would be a phenomenal result, par not a disaster.

Only Reed, who famously claimed to be in the top five players in the world last year, could have expected what happened next.

After making a perfect connection, the ball flew right over the top of the flag before spinning back into the cup for an eagle three.

It was enough to ensure Reed made it into a play-off with Kristoffer Broberg. Reed didn’t win the tournament but he certainly won shot of the day.
