VIDEO: Incredible eagle helps Howell's Sunday charge

May 18, 5:26 PM

Charles Howell III waited until Sunday's to make his run at the Byron Nelson Championship, but once he got going the shot-making was extraordinary. 

Howell's biggest swing came on the Par-5 16th. From 116 yards out, Howell landed his approach in the middle of the green before pulling the string with some wicked backspin to hole out for eagle.

The eagle moved Howell 11-under on the tournament, three shots off the lead.
