Watch: Scott Hend Makes Albatross in China

April 24, 2016

Scott Hend shot a red-hot seven-under 65 in the second round of the European Tour’s Shenzhen International thanks in part to an albatross on the par-5 17th. Hend holed his approach shot from 233 yards, but never saw the ball go in.

“I turned to TC (Tony Carolan, his caddie) and said, ‘Wouldn’t it be funny if it went in?’ A cameraman came up and said it was a two — it was very surprising.”

For mere mortals, the albatross is one of the most rare feats in all of golf. But for Hend, it’s more of a regular occurrence: “It’s my sixth albatross, so it’s always nice to make an albatross, especially in the tournament.”

I guess there’s a reason he plays golf for a living. You can watch the video of Hend’s albatross below.
