Jordan Spieth is one of the most creative golfers on the PGA Tour.

On Friday at the Ryder Cup, Spieth pulled off his latest stunning display of escapability, taking what looked like an impossible shot and landing it right next to the pin.

Playing foursomes with fellow American Justin Thomas, Spieth found himself pinned against a nearly vertical wall of Earth just shy of the green. Behind him, a steep drop off fell into Lake Michigan.

Spieth, no stranger to blind shots, stepped up to the ball and sent up what looked like a prayer.

The prayer was answered.

The momentum of Spieth's shot forced him to shuffle-step backwards, and once he was rolling that direction, it proved difficult to stop. For a moment, it looked as though Spieth was going to tumble all the way into the water.

Thankfully, he caught up with his feet just in time.

While Spieth and Thomas would go on to lose the match, Spieth's shot looked like it would be the shot of the Ryder Cup - until Bryson DeChambeau slammed a drive into outer space just a few hours later.

If this is a tease of what is to come in the Ryder Cup this year, we should be in for quite a show.
