Check out this terrific water save shot by Nicholas Thompson on Saturday, in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Instead of taking a drop, Thompson elected to take off his socks and shoes, and give it a whirl.

His shot from the water ended up mere inches from the cup, and is now being compared to Bill Haas' 2011 Tour Championship approach.

Thompson finished at a +3 for the round, and is now +5 for the tournament.
