This Guido Migliozzi stinger approach shot is pure filth

January 20, 2023

There's nothing hardcore golf fans freak out over more than a good stinger. Tiger Woods is the godfather of this cool shot—although, Golf Digest coined the term—but there have been many others before and after who have perfected the knockdown, including Phil Mickelson, Gary Woodland, and Scott Stallings. Well, you can now add Guido Migliozzi to that short list.

We're used to seeing this shot off the tee, but the Italian star pulled it off on an approach shot during the second round of the DP World Tour's Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship. And when we say the three-time DP World Tour winner pulled it off, we mean he hit one of the filthiest shots you will see in 2023.

With water howling off the water, watch as the 25-year-old hits an absolute bullet to a back pin, nearly holing the shot. He (happily) settled for a tap-in birdie and a share of the 36-hole lead with fellow countryman Francesco Molinari:

"Oh, there's a ball flight . . . this is just sublime!" Yep. Even Tiger Woods would agree.
