VIDEO: 17-year-old’s walk-off albatross to win pro-junior at Pebble Beach

This might be a first: a walk-off albatross.

High school senior Christopher Meyers stood 204 yards away from the hole at the iconic par-5 18th hole in the pro-junior competition of the Champions Tour's Nature Valley First Tee Open. Teaming with Lee Janzen, Meyers needed an eagle to win the tournament. With a 4-iron in his hand, he did one better, sinking the shot for a tournament-winning albatross.

This is a first. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Pebble Beach officials could not recall another albatross at the 18th hole in tournament play.

Making the albatross even more interesting is that Meyers' tee shot caromed off the rocks along the left side of the fairway, the barrier between the golf course and the ocean.

Meyers is Stanford-bound in the fall with a memory he'll never forget.
