The “Wesley Bryan used to be a trick-shot artist” line has been beaten into the ground during the PGA Tour rookie’s recent surge. That being said, his creative roots certainly didn’t hurt in creating Thursday’s best highlight from the Valspar Championship.

And way to cap it off by rolling in the birdie putt.
Bryan shot an opening 68 at Innisbrook's Copperhead Course. He may need a new iron when he tees it up on Friday, but at least it was well worth it.

Something tells me my wedge wouldn't look that good if I tried the same shot.
