This has to be the equivalent to a bat-flip home run in baseball, doesn't it?

Peter Malnati chipped in for eagle on the 72nd hole of the Sony Open on Sunday after thinking he hit his ball way past the pin.

His reaction is great.

The shot was worth about $10,000, too, when you consider the difference in prize money between finishing at 6 under (wher Malnati finished with the chip) and 4 under (where he probably would have finished if he had missed it.
