Aus Am Champ's Incredible Trick Shot

Phil Mickelson made the shot famous but now the backwards flop shot has been perfected by current Australian Amateur Champion Matias Sanchez.

While not yet game to try the daring shot in competition as Lefty has, Sanchez showed how it's done during a practise session at his home club, Sandhurst, in Melbourne's south-east.

With a few balls and a couple of golf clubs laying on the green as he perfectly executed the reverse flop over his head, it's hard to know how many attempts the 20-year-old had at the shot, but regardless of whether it was first try to 50th try, it's a remarkable shot to pull off.

Sanchez - who is also a pennant player at Royal Melbourne - rose to prominence in January when he defeated Western Australian Min Woo Lee in the Australian Amateur final at Yarra Yarra in Melbourne.
