Tom Watson is playing in this week's Champions Tour tournament, the Toshiba Classic and he nearly pulled off the shot of the year (maybe the last five years?)

Watson was up against a tree on a par-3 on Friday and decided to stand with his back to the flag and hit a chip shot behind him. It hit the flagstick and bounced away but the fact that he even got it within 20 feet is just incredible.

Watson was eight back of leader Bernhard Langer after round one.
