Perhaps the elusive albatross isn’t so elusive — at least it hasn’t been the past two days at Bay Hill.

Daniel Berger hit one for the history books on Saturday at Bay Hill. The 21-year-old rookie holed out from 237 yards with a 4-iron on the par-5 6th to post a rare albatross (or as we Americans mistakenly refer to as a “double eagle”).

It was the first ever at the Arnold Palmer Invitational since the inception of the event in 1979.

James Hahn achieved one of the rarest feats in golf on Friday during the second round of the Sony Open.

From the right rough on the par-5 9th at Waialae Country Club, Hahn hit a *perfect* second shot from 193 yards with a 6-iron, landing it just short of the green and letting it roll up to the pin and straight into the hole for an albatross (or double eagle — semantics).

The shot of the day goes to Nick Watney, who carded the rare albatross. Watney hit a 5-iron from 190 yards on the par-5 17th and watched in roll in the hole. He followed it up with a celebration for the ages (or one that matched someone named “Peter Oosthuizen” at the Masters earlier this year).
