WATCH: Golfer hits backwards shot off slope and drains it

Video Screen Capture


There aren't a whole lot of golfers who can pull off hitting a golf ball backwards on purpose -- even if Phil Mickelson has tried to teach us in the past.

Even more special? A golfers who can hit a ball backwards on purpose and put the ball in the hole.

That's what Tom Santa did as part of a round at his home course, St. Thomas, in France.

That's a pretty great shot, and, based on the lack of typical YouTube trick-shot over-exaggerated celebration, this is probably something Santa has done plenty of times in his life. The 20-year-old is ranked 1375th in the European Golf Rankings.
