Kenny Perry's Amazing Shot From The Fairway- Happy 50th Birthday!!!

Are you kidding me!?!? Just in case you missed it, here is video from the final round of the WGC Bridgestone Invitational of a miraculous golf shot. Kenny Perry gave himself an early birthday present by wielding a seven iron and nailing this shot from 177 yards away on the par four, sixth hole. Seriously???

We sometimes see the occasional approach shot roll and run up to pin and drop in for eagle. We have seen shots played long and then back up into the cup with the spin that seemingly only tour pros can produce. But a swish? Straight in the hole? Rarely do we see this. It looked like a Michael Jordan jump shot. Nothing but the bottom of the cup.

The shot helped him to finish at a respectable two under for the tournament and a tie for nineteenth overall. Hopefully this strong finish will give him confidence going into the 92nd playing of the PGA Championship. Perry had been struggling this year and for the first time in his career, we heard rumors that he might be thinking about heading to the Champions Tour.

Perry still strikes the ball well, as evidence by this shot. He has the game to compete with anyone on the tour, but does he have the will? I like watching him play because he is the type of player that plays the course. If you want to learn about course management, then follow Perry for a round. He plays within himself and puts the ball where it needs to be in order to shoot good scores.

A very happy birthday to Kenny Perry. I hope he does well on the difficult layout at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin. With over 1000 bunkers strategically(deviously) placed in areas that make you think about each shot, excellent course management will be key to winning this years championship.

1000 bunkers? Good luck with that. Have a good round and always hit your target.
