In the history of the Masters, there had only been 14 eagles made at the par-4 seventh hole before Sunday. Then Marc Leishman holed out from the fairway on a magnificent approach, bumping that number up to 15.

Just watch this beautifully crafted shot, which required an understanding of the green’s layout.

Low scores have been hard to come by this weekend, and the sledding has been tough for Leishman, who is well above par. However, this tremendous shot gave him a burst of life and shot him into red numbers on this Sunday at Augusta. At the time of this writing, Leishman was tied for 42nd at eight over par.
