With 2017 winding down, it's time to look back on the best shots from the year, with some wild scenarios and finishes on the PGA Tour.

Here are the 10 best shots from the 2017 season:

10. Rory McIlroy - PGA Championship

McIlroy displayed some creativity en route to saving par in the second round at Quail Hollow.

9. Kevin Kisner - Zurich Classic

Kisner's eagle forced a Monday playoff against Cameron Smith and Jonas Blixt, but would ultimately lose on the fourth extra hole.

8. Ian Poulter - THE PLAYERS

Golf. Is. Spectacular.

Poulter followed up a terrible approach shot at the par-4 18th by nearly holing his fourth shot for par from a patch of dirt.

7. Phil Mickelson - Safeway Open

"Not your average birdie". Phil's not your average pro. πŸŒοΈπŸ’―

After a pulled drive, Mickelson hit a low-flying hook around the trees, which finished 10 feet from the hole before burying a birdie.

6. Jordan Spieth - The Open

The Texan struck a 3-iron from the practice range at Royal Birkdale, touching down just shy of the green. Spieth would get up-and-down for the most important bogey of the year.

5. Justin Thomas - U.S. Open

At the par-5 18th, Thomas hoisted a 299-yard 3-wood to six feet, then made the eagle putt to set the lowest score relative to par in U.S. Open history.

4. Dustin Johnson - The Northern Trust

This line. 😳 (341 yards by @djohnsonpga)

Johnson's line off the tee was insane, leaving just a gap wedge into the green en route to his fourth victory of the season.

3. Sergio Garcia - The Masters

Garcia hit the most dramatic shot in Sunday's final round, dropping an 8-iron stiff at the par-5 15th, leading to eagle.

2. Jon Rahm - Farmers Insurance Open

The young Spaniard won his first career PGA Tour title, dropping a 60-foot eagle putt on the 72nd hole.

1. Jordan Spieth - Travelers Championship

Speechless. @JordanSpieth - 2017 winner of the @TravelersChamp.

Spieth holed his bunker shot on the first extra hole to eventually beat Daniel Berger, causing the Texan and his caddie, Michael Greller, to also provide an equally memorable celebration.
