Let's just say if this shot was part of a Nike commercial, I would believe it was heavily edited.

Apparently it wasn't though and Matt Wheatcroft playing in the British Par-3 Championship, actually hit a ball off a fence post going the wrong direction and got it to land a foot from the hole.

I've watched it three times now and I'm still not sure how it happened. I love the description from Brian Barnes, too. So matter-of-fact. "Yeah, just hit it off that fence post there, it was right in line so it was pretty easy."
