No matter how many times you re-watch this, it doesn’t get any less amazing. In his first round at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Jon Rahm hit one of the strangest shots golfers have ever seen. No, it wasn’t an odd shape or anything like that, Rahm hit into the second hole at TPC Scottsdale for his approach but hit his playing partner’s (Xander Schauffele) ball on the full, sending both ball rocketing in opposing directions. Check it out.

What are the chances!? Unbelievable stuff happening at this year’s Waste Management that’s for sure! For the record, Schauffele by ruling was allowed to replace the ball but Rahm was less fortunate, having to play his where it finished by deflection…33 feet short of the hole where it otherwise could have been 6 feet. Both players managed pars however. This incident was reminiscent of one of Tiger’s most infamous breaks at Augusta in 2013.
