WATCH: Charl Schwartzel makes back-to-back eagles at Tour Championship
The South African is making a move at East Lake
Leave it to the last tournament of the 2015-16 PGA Tour season to provide us with some of the most unique moments. First, Phil Mickelson made the longest putt of the season on Thursday.
On Friday, Charl Schwartzel made back-to-back eagles for just the second time on Tour this season. In fact, this has only happened eight times in the last four seasons.

X = SEASON
4 = 2009
3 = 2010
1 = 2011
4 = 2012
0 = 2013
3 = 2013-14
3 = 2014-15
2 = 2015-16
Schwartzel made a traditional eagle at the par-5 sixth before holing out on the par-4 seventh to double up. The two eagles moved him to 3 under for the event, which was still seven strokes back of leader Dustin Johnson.
The only other golfer to complete this feat this season was Nick Taylor at the Career Builder Challenge all the way back at the beginning of the calendar year. His included an ace, so this is the first time it has happened on a par 4 and par 5 consecutively all year.
