WATCH: Golf Twitter reacts to AMAZING flop shot over water from college golfer

As far as flop shots go this one is pretty damn special. 

It's the type of shot that will strike fear into your heart in ordinary circumstances. 

You'd more than likely only place full confidence in someone like Phil Mickelson pulling off this short of wizardry. 

But this college golfer sensationally pulls it off and throws the ball high into the air and lands it softly next to the cup. 

Take a look at the video, posted on the @golfchannel Instagram page. 

Just look at that. 

There's no green to work with and there's a looming water hazard just in front of the short stuff. 

How many of us would thin it straight towards the TV tower in the background?

How many of us would launch the ball high up into the air and straight into the water?

What about a leading edge straight into the grass and a resulting shank?

Palmer Jackson really executed this shot perfectly. 

And the clip went viral on social media with more than 300,000 views and counting. 

Comments included: 

"Wow from the sound it looked like he went underneath the ball."

"Played it almost like a bunker shot he was doomed if it was a few yards shorter." 

"If that was me.. I’m definitely sending a line drive at the TV tower."

"Full gas, awesome."

"Hats up, what a lob!"
