Masters 2017: You can't slam-dunk an approach any better than Russell Henley did on Sunday

April 09, 2017

Russell Henley was the last player to get an invite to the Masters, earning his spot with a win at the Shell Houston Open.

After rounds of 71, 76, and 71 and going into the final round eight shots back, Henley’s having himself a nice round on Sunday.

Henley took a bogey on the fourth, and then slam-dunked his approach for an eagle on the fifth hole. Literally, dropped it straight into the cup. If you don’t believe it, you’re not alone. It took a few moments for the Henley to realize what he’d done:

It turns out the shot came in so hot, the next group was held up as officials had to repair the cup. One thing's for sure: Henley's left a mark on Augusta.
