Shaun Micheel may not be in a position to win the 2010 U.S. Open, but he has now played the greatest single hole of the tournament. Minutes ago, Micheel shot a double eagle on the sixth hole.
Micheel's second shot is the focus here -- his approach shot rolled on the green and directly into the hole, more than making up for a previous double bogey.
A double eagle is otherwise known as an albatross, and it's even more rare than a hole-in-one:
Between 1983 to 2003, there were 631 aces on the PGA Tour but just 56 double-eagles - and never more than 6 albatrosses in one year.
Consider the number of golfers and the number of holes involved, and also consider that Micheel pulled this off in a major tournament. An incredible feat.
