While the young and talented Justin Thomas was busy securing his first career major by winning the 2017 PGA Championship, Jon Rahm wowed the spectators on Sunday with a golf shot you have to see to believe.

Watch: Rahm found himself with a precarious lie so he improvised. Beautifully.

Just when you thought you'd seen in all. Many golf fans have seen the occasional goofy golf shot: When a ball is up against a tree and a right-handed golfer might have to hit left-handed, or the handful of times we've seen golfers remove shoes or even pants to get a stance in a water hazard. 

However, I don't ever recall seeing a player facing completely away from the hole, using one arm to swing, and executing a near perfect chip shot onto the middle of the green from about 75 yards away. 

He didn't take home the first-place trophy like Justin Thomas did on Sunday, but Rahm certainly dazzled the crowd in that moment.
