GIF: This recovery shot Martin Kaymer hit was incredible

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

After making bogey a hole before on the par-4 fourth -- a good bogey, all things considered -- third-round U.S. Open leader Martin Kaymer stepped up on the fifth tee and pulled his drive left into the waste area. To make matters worse, the ball rolled into a little plant.

But that didn't seem to bother him too much. On the short par 5, Kaymer drew his second shot around the trees with an iron and watched as his ball flew to the front of the green. The ball landed softly and released perfect to five feet, a putt he made for eagle to get back to 10 under for the championship.
