    Shot of the year from the 2010 Masters - Phil Mickelson

    With every great championship, comes a shot that defines the whole thing. For this year's US Masters champion, it was this peach at the 13th.

    Why was this shot so good? Well, for one, it required sublime shot-shaping abilities to keep it low and whip it around the trees. It also required nerves of steel and great guts to go for it when he could have simply chipped out and gone for par or bogey.

    This is around 200 yards out, there's a creek in the way, he's playing off the pine cones and he's gunning for a major on the last day. Kudos to you, Phil Mickelson.
