Watch Victor Dubuisson make the greatest back-to-back up-and-downs of all time. Seriously

By Alex Myers

You know Victor Dubuisson, the International Man of Mystery who crashed the final four of the WGC-Accenture Match Play? Well, apparently, he's an International Man of Magic also.

After winning 17 and 18 to extend the championship match against Jason Day, his run appeared over when his approach on the first extra hole sailed long and into the desert.

But while Jim Nantz and Nick Faldo pondered if he'd have to take a drop for an unplayable lie, Dubuisson quickly addressed his jeopardized ball, took a hack, and, well, this happened:

Through sand, rocks, bush, cactus and even a TV cable, Dubuisson's ball somehow rolled to about four feet. The ridiculous (just listen to the announcers' stunned reactions) par save extended the match, but then, on the next hole (also in the above clip), Dubuisson again found the desert with his approach. He couldn't pull off another miracle could he? Of course he could! He's Victor Dubuisson!

Unfortunately for Dubuisson, his miracles weren't enough to overcome Day, who won with a birdie on the 23rd hole. Still, we're going to remember the Frenchman's desert heroics for years to come. Faldo described the unlikely/unusual/unreal par saves as, "the two greatest up-and-downs in a row ... that has to go straight to No. 1."

No argument here.
