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 golf’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. It’s a rare and impressive feat. But then on Tuesday, he one-upped that accomplishment in a big way. Watch the clip:

Rahm honored the Masters tradition attempting to skip to the green during practice at the par-3 16th hole. 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.
