Web.com Tour player Tony Finau started his round on a nice note at the United Leasing Championship on Friday.

How's that?

Well, Finau started on the back nine and, yep, look at that card:

Three stokres on a par 5 and ace on a par 3. That's when we here at Eye on Golf let the Twitters take over and dub this baby an "American."

Yes, back-to-back eagles couldn't (and shouldn't) be called anything else.

The crazy part is that Finau made a bogey on the last hole of his first nine and still shot a 30. He was on pace for a 36 (for 18) through two holes.

Not bad.
