A basic principle of match play is to always assume your opponent is going to make. But you'd have to forgive both Sebastian Munoz and Scottie Scheffler for not sticking to that on one particular hole during their Day 4 singles match at the 2022 Presidents Cup.

Playing the the drivable par-4 11th hole at Quail Hollow, both players put themselves in good shape off the tee. Scheffler held a small advantage putting from the fringe while Munoz faced a bunker shot just a few feet away from his opponent's ball. Then an incredible sequence ensued.

First, Munoz holed his 20-yard bunker shot for an improbable eagle. It appeared like the International Team member had won his fourth consecutive hole to grab a two-up lead on the World No. 1. But not so fast!

Scheffler responded by draining his 62-foot putt for an eagle of his own to halve what was undoubtedly the best-played hole of the entire week. Check out both amazing shots—you can see the freshly raked bunker as Scheffler putts:

Just an amazing back-and-forth. These guys are (really) good. And again, we're pretty sure neither expected the other to make.

The two kept their hot play going by halving the next hole with birdies. Just like your weekly games at the home, huh?
