Here at Eye on Golf we like to put forth some of the best golf shots we see every week. Shots that have a chance to make the year-end top 10 list. Here's one of those shots.

This Russell Knox is as good as flop shots get in pro golf. We've all seen the Phil Mickelson tutorials on YouTube but to pull this off in a real event (in this case, the Valspar Championship) is really impressive.

I mean look how high it goes? And from that angle, he could hit 100 more balls from there and none would fall.

Knox is even for the tournament and as you probably remember was one of the golfers who lost in the four-way playoff at the Honda Classic a few weeks ago.
