Jamie Lovemark had the shot of the playoff round yesterday in the Nationwide Tour Tournament.  No, he didn't win the contest, those honors went to Troy Matteson, but with a three way tie after 3 rounds of play, he, Matteson and rookie sensation Rickie Fowler were all out to play the best golf of their young lives.

Jamie and Rickie were into the clubhouse first at -18, and had to stand and watch, waiting to see if Matteson could hold on to his stranglehold on the top spot.  It wasn't to be, and all three would head to a play off.

Jamie's shot, his second off the fairway, is unbelievable, and you have to see it to believe it.  It's at the 1:20 mark of the video.

As seen in the video, Matteson goes on to birdie the second hole and win the tournament, but just like Tin Cup, it isn't the win we all will remember.

Oh, and for the record, no, the ball didn't bounce off the water, there is a concrete lip just under the surface of the water the ball bounced off of.
