Between the 13th hole at Royal Birkdale and his first-round magic trick at Firestone Country Club, starting to think this Jordan Spieth fella has a knack for the spectacular.

The British Open champ found himself in a bit of a predicament during the first round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, putting his drive on the par-4 eighth hole into the trees. Rather than do the prudent move, Spieth – perhaps playing with a house-money mentality – decided to go for the hero shot. A move so brazen that he admitted, “I’m going to try something stupid,” waving off caddie Michael Greller to ensure common sense didn’t reign supreme.

Of course, the man proceeded to pull off a “Did you see that?!” shot of epic proportions:

I want to believe our recent study and investigation into the viability of hitting through trees was in the back of Spieth’s mind during this decision. But, in all likelihood, it probably stems from the cat being really, REALLY in the zone right now.
