April 7 is the seven year anniversary of one of the greatest and most improbable golf shots of all-time.

The shot, courtesy of Vijay Singh, was a hole-in-one that went in after he skipped the ball over a water hazard. It happened at Augusta National during the 2009 Masters week. Unfortunately, it was a practice round.

It’s still one of the most incredible shots you’ll ever see.

Just check this out. Amazing.

As for the 2009 Masters week, that was Singh’s highlight. Though he did finish in a tie for 30th at 1-under, 11 shots behind winner Angel Cabrera.
