WATCH: Nick Watney skims ball across water | THIS IS INCREDIBLE!

PGA Tour pro Nick Watney played one of the coolest shots of the season so far when skipping his ball across the water at the par-5 16th on day two of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.

Okay, it might not have been as cool as Jon Rahm's epic water-skipping ace at The Masters, but it was impressive nonetheless especially given he was playing from the fairway bunker.

Luck or pure skill?

We'll let you figure that out...

Watney ended up chipping close and holing the putt for a birdie en route to a second-round 72.

He has since improved on that in the third round with a solid 69 to move to 1-under par on a tough day of scoring. 

The 40-year-old has won five times on the PGA Tour but his last victory dates back to The Barclays in 2012. 

Watney's biggest career win came at the 2011 WGC-Cadillac Championship.

He has been struggling for form on the PGA Tour in recent years but he did finish tied second at the Sanderson Farms last year, marking his best finish anywhere around the world since his last PGA Tour victory. 

Watney currently lies 345th in the world rankings.
