VIDEO: Former ASU golfer Jon Rahm hits incredible backward shot at PGA Championship

Incredible shots are becoming a regular thing for Arizona State Sun Devils alum Jon Rahm. 

But hitting no-look backhand shots during a major PGA Tour event? Yeah, that's going to get our attention.

Approaching his third shot of the 18th hole at the PGA Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina on Sunday, the 22-year-old Rahm was in a precarious spot with his ball right next to the water.

Not having enough room to comfortably stand to the left of the ball, the right-handed Rahm decided on a Plan B that was just crazy enough to work: stand on the opposite side and hit a backhanded shot to get the ball to the green.

Naturally, Rahm's plan worked to perfection.

Rahm, who already has a PGA Tour and European Tour championship in his brief pro career, went on to bogey the hole and finish 4-over par for the round and 7-over for the tournament.
