VIDEO: Daniel Berger’s Arnold Palmer Invitational albatross

Daniel Berger, just 21, is showing the promise of a future superstar.

Berger, who lost in a playoff for The Honda Classic to Padraig Harrington at the start of the Florida Swing, made a deuce on the seven-shaped par-5 sixth at Bay Hill. In 1998, John Daly put seven balls in the water trying to clear it off the tee in 1998, leading to a PGA Tour record-worst 18 on the hole.

It's the 109th albatross on the PGA Tour since the Tour started keeping such records in 1983 -- meaning, on average, there are three or four per year.

The albatross propelled Berger to a 4-under 68 in Round 3 to get to 7 under for the week and nine shots behind leader Henrik Stenson.
