You’re excused if Hideto Tanihara wasn’t a familiar name to you before this week at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. But after defeating Jordan Spieth on day one, and battling with Dustin Johnson in Sunday’s semi-finals, Tanihara is definitely on the radar of golf fans around the world after this week.

And to cap it off, Tanihara gave us this highlight-reel shot on the seventh hole during his consolation match with Bill Haas.

The 38-year-old star from Japan is known for his skills with the putter – but they weren’t needed on this hole.

Not pictured is Tanihara giving gallery members a high-five on his way to the hole. We love it – he’s becoming a fan favourite in Austin.

Sadly, Haas claimed the consolation match 2&1, but with more than half a million dollars now in his bank account, a Masters invitation confirmed (courtesy of his guaranteed world ranking boost) and this ace, it’s been one big week for the Japanese player.
