The most amazing three-foot golf shot you'll ever see

The bunkers at Carnoustie are deep, vicious things, capable of swallowing hopes and dreams and souls. On Sunday, co-leader Xander Schauffele found himself in a wicked position, pinned up hard against the bunker on the fifth hole. And, as luck would have it, there was a camera right there … and it captured an exceptional angle. Check it out in the video above.

The rest of the British Open is shaping up to be a fine little tournament; if you’re interested in following the round of a fella by the name of Tiger Woods, why, tap right here.
