SCOTS golfer Robert MacIntyre has managed to land a “one in a million shot” after sinking an impressive backwards chip – while using his weak hand.

While practising before a round at the famous Sawgrass golf course in Florida in the US, the 24-year-old managed to pull off the lucky shot.

Robert posted a video of his amazing shot onto his Twitter page on Wednesday as he practiced on the 17th of the famous course.

In the video, Robert, originally from Oban, Argyll and Bute, can be seen standing with his back to the flag.

He looks over his shoulder in an attempt to line himself up with the hole, clutching a pitching wedge.

Robert then chips the ball directly behind him, hitting it perfectly straight.

Robert is known for being left handed, however clutches the club in his right hand – which makes it even more impressive.

He watches as the ball flies uphill towards the hole and then successfully rolls into the hole.
