Golf trick shots are a uniquely awe-inspiring category. The game is hard enough played the normal way. But when we see someone do the seemingly impossible, it's truly like a magic trick, with a club and ball instead of a rabbit and a hat. We start with an impressive show-off shot from Phil Mickelson.
Lefty is probably the game's greatest short game practitioner, but this is ridiculous. Mickelson's backward pitch shot has to be seen to be believed.
Not sure what the big deal is — I've 9-putted a green before.
We know Tiger Woods has always been an artist with a club in his hands; here he proves it. Tiger was fooling around in between shots for a Nike commercial, when the commercial's directors realized that what he was doing was far better than whatever they had planned. See if you don't agree.
This one's not so much a trick shot by Long John as an amazing display of trust from David Feherty. Feherty's either very brave, or very stupid.
Ben Witter should be famous. He's turned trick shots into an art form, and the practice tee is his canvas.
Tiger can't walk on water, but he can make his golf ball do it.
Vijay does Tiger one better and skips his ball across the pond and into the hole at No. 16 during a practice round at The Masters.
