European Tour player makes INSANE start with back-to-back EAGLES

Rhys Enoch made an extraordinary start to the Canary Islands Championship on Thursday and found himself 7-under par through just five holes.

The Welshman made one of the hottest starts in European Tour history at Golf Costa Adeje in Tenerife, en route to a 6-under par opening round which Enoch may be slightly disappointed with, given his sensational start.

Starting his round on the back nine, Enoch opened with a birdie at the par-3 10th, before following up with an eagle at the par-5 next and he made it back-to-back eagles with a two at the par-4 12th.

Enoch's start got even better when he followed up two eagles with two more birdies, to play the opening five holes in an incredible 7-under par.

Golf fans were starting to think Enoch was on his way to making the lowest round in the history of the European Tour, but his fast start took a knock when he bogeyed the 18th hole, his 9th.

Enoch made another bogey at the 1st hole, but bounced back with a birdie at the next, which was followed with five pars in a row.

The 32-year-old added one final bogey to his scorecard at the 8th, before a par at the par-4 9th and his final hole of the day meant he signed for a 6-under par 65.

"Thats Tiger Woods on PlayStation that score," said one golf fan in the comments on Instagram.
