Shot of the year candidate: Keegan Bradley inches from albatross

It's not so much that Keegan Bradley almost made an albatross, but more where he did it from on Friday in New Orleans at the Zurich Classic.

Bradley was in a right-hand bunker in the fairway, 230 yards from the pin and he nearly rolled the thing in. He went on to slide in his eagle, shoot 66, and was T7 after the second round, six shots back of leader Ben Martin.

Pretty impressive for somebody who practices by trying to take down drones.
