PGA Tour pros hit the ugliest – and prettiest – shots you’ll see Sunday at 2024 Valspar Championship

Within 30 minutes during the final round at the 2024 Valspar Championship a pair of PGA Tour players hit the best and worst shots you’ll see from professionals.

First up was Robby Shelton.

Coming off his best season as a professional in 2023, the 28-year-old has been slow to start in 2024 and entered the week off a pair of missed cuts. He played his way to the weekend at Innisbrook Resort’s Copperhead Course in Palm Harbor, Florida, and on Sunday hit a shot he won’t soon forget. Shelton made an albatross on the par-5 14th hole after he sunk his approach from 258 yards out in the fairway.

This thing was a laser-guided missile destined to find the hole.

And then there was Peter Malnati, who has made headlines in recent weeks for his thoughts on the future of the PGA Tour and his touching reason for why he uses a green golf ball. In contention for his second win on Tour and first since 2015, Malnati found the fairway and pulled a hybrid from the bag for his second shot on the par-5 5th hole. With 291 yards to the cup, Malnati hit one of the uglier non-shanks you’ll see from a pro. You can’t quite call it a top because the ball somehow still went 172 yards, but he sure didn’t catch it clean.

Even the broadcasters were confused about what they had just seen.

Professional golfers: sometimes they do the unthinkable and other times they’re just like us amateurs.
