Mo Martin came to the 18th hole at the Women's British Open on Sunday knowing she needed something special to take home the trophy.

The world's 99th ranked player delivered and then some.

Martin trailed by two strokes with two to play but made the eagle you see above at the last to get to 1 under, the only golfer under par for the championship.

It was nearly a double eagle.

Martin, who only had two eagles in her career coming into today, defeated Shanshan Feng and Suzann Pettersen by one stroke each.

It was Martin's first ever finish inside the top 25 of a major and one she said she won't soon forget.

The elite LPGA season keeps cranking awesome moments.
