If you want to know how many incredible shots Tiger Woods has pulled off over his career, just take a quick trip over to YouTube and type in the words "Tiger Woods greatest shots." Within seconds you'll find a treasure trove of highlights from every year he's been on tour.

There's the shot from the fairway bunker at the 2002 Canadian Open; the chip-in on the 16th hole at the 2005 Masters; the approach shot in the dark at the 2000 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational; and the putt to force the playoff at the 2008 U.S. Open.

And that's just a small snippet, folks. There's no question he's produced more highlight-reel shots than any golfer on the planet. Well, he added another to his library on Sunday at the Memorial with a chip-in on the 16th hole at Muirfield that could be the best shot we've seen from him post-fire hydrant.

One shot behind then-leader Rory Sabbatini with three holes left in his round, Woods blew his tee shot over the green on the par-3, the second-hardest shot on the course, leaving him with a diabolical, downhill shot from the rough. Par would have been an incredible score. But in typical Tiger fashion, he did one better, lofting the ball high in the air before it landed softly on the green ... and tracked right into the hole.

It was vintage Tiger Woods, who gave the customary fist-pump as the crowd roared its approval. Woods birdied three of his last four holes to capture his fifth Memorial win by two strokes. He shot a 5-under 67 and finished 9-under.

"That was one of the most incredible golf shots I think I've ever seen played," tournament host Jack Nicklaus said.

It's hard to disagree with the greatest golfer of all time. After watching the shot over and over again, we'd have to agree that it goes right up there with some of the greatest shots in Woods' career.
