This is Scott Henry of Scotland hitting his tee shot at the 5th hole at the Madeira Islands Open in Portugal last weekend.

That background is something to behold. It looks like he's eye level with some of those clouds.

The Madeira Islands Open is played on, well, the island of Madeira off the southwest coast of Portugal. It is nestled in the Atlantic Ocean and man, I can't get over that view.

Sure beats my local muni course.
