Kentucky senior golfer Chip McDaniel sank a 118-yard approach shot on the 18th hole to record a walk-off eagle in the final round of the Bryan Regional. The shot came after McDaniel’s 326-yard drive on the 444-yard, par-four 18th, and it punched UK’s ticket to the NCAA championship for only the 10th time in school history.
The Wildcats entered the day down 10 strokes and in need of a special day to advance. The team fired a 3-under final round to jump Ole Miss on the scoreboard by three strokes, concluding with McDaniel’s eagle when he only needed a par to seal his team’s fate. The UK senior shot a 31 on the back after a disappointing 40 before the turn.
Unfortunately there is no video of the shot (that I know of), but we do have the Golf Channel’s coverage of the event.
