The reigning rookie of the year Xander Schauffele nearly added an albatross to his growing PGA Tour resume on Sunday.

Standing in the desert, under a tree, 245 yards from the hole, Schauffele hit this second shot to the par-5 13th at TPC Scottsdale.

Unfortunately, his 10-foot eagle bid would miss the hole, leaving him to mark down a four when he so very nearly made a two.
