Charl Schwartzel made an incredible eagle 2 on the 10th hole at Augusta National to catapult himself up closer towards leader Scottie Scheffler.

The 2011 champion hit a huge drive of 344 yards down the 10th and managed to find the bottom of the cup from 136 yards after spinning his approach back into the hole. Incredibly it's the not the first eagle on that hole of the week, as Gary Woodland also made a 2 there in Friday's second round after holing out from 188 yards.

Prior to this week, Australian Robert Allenby was the last man to eagle it during the Masters in 2008 when he holed a 6-iron. Schwartzel's eagle is the tenth 2 on the 10th hole in the history of The Masters.

Schwartzel's incredible eagle took him to three-under-par for the day to reach six-under for the tournament. It moved him to second on the leaderboard and helped him get to within five strokes of leader and playing partner Scottie Scheffler.
