Making a two on a par 5 – otherwise known as an albatross – is among the most difficult feats in both golf and disc golf, the sport’s comparatively crunchy cousin.
But at the 2016 Beaver State Fling (an excellent name for a disc golf tournament, by the way), Philo Brathwaite sunk a truly audacious albatross on an 850-foot par 5 when he managed to successfully curl his second shot (we’ll estimate 400 feet) in two different directions, around a tree, and right into the hole.
Check this out:
How on earth does he do this?
There are plenty of good sports happening at the moment. We’ve got the NBA Finals, the Copa America, the European Championship, plus the College World Series and MLB.
But the best sports highlight of the week goes to Mr. Brathwaite. Congratulations on your frolf albatross.

Correction: an earlier version of this post incorrectly said Brathwaite’s second shot was 850 feet. The entire length of the hole was 850 feet, and his impressive second shot was a mere 400 or so feet.
