Matt Jones

Sometimes, there just aren't words. 

Matt Jones, who made a bomb of a birdie on his 72nd hole to get to 15-under, a shot back of Matt Kuchar who was in the fairway needing just a par to win the Shell Houston Open, holed a pitch shot on the first playoff hole to win his first ever PGA Tour event and get into his first ever Masters.

I could explain what happened, but just watch the shot and the reaction from the Aussie who now has the shot of the year on the PGA Tour. 

And, for fun, here is the birdie he made on his final hole in regulation to give himself a chance at a playoff with Kuchar.
