This incredible trick shot will make you feel really bad about your bunker skills. (If it's real. We're not sure).

What's tougher than a greenside bunker shot? A greenside bunker shot from a buried lie. But one instructor, Travis Fulton, took this shot golfers everywhere dread and made it much, much, much more difficult.

Why three "muches"? Because Fulton, one of Golf Digest's top 40 teachers under 40, used three golf balls. At the same time. Oh, and he actually buried them by completely covering them in sand. Be prepared to be amazed at the results*:

Actually, we all can learn from Fulton's shot. He takes a steep swing, he strikes down on the sand behind the ball, and he doesn't let the sand slow his club down. And if you want more sand tips, here's what Butch Harmon, Hank Haney, David Leadbetter, and Sean Foley, among others, have to say on the subject.

*Unless, of course, this is some sort of optical illusion. We'll prefer to believe it isn't.
