He once posted a video on YouTube called: 'How to be a Birdie Machine', and it was very easy to see why during the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Justin Rose's 50-foot birdie saw him flying to the end of his nine-hole run at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, Florida.

The Englishman played in the morning marquee group and started at the 10th hole, completing a string of pars before he reached the par-four 18th hole, which he finished in style.

Having not won a PGA Tour championship since 2015 in New Orleans, the former world number three is eager to finally get a win under his belt. 

And performances like this show that the 36-year-old is still somebody to keep your eye on.

After a bad second shot, in which he missed the green, the ball badly positioned 50ft away from the hole and on top of a downhill slope to the right.

However, that didn't stop Rose from being the Birdie Machine he is. 

His precision and power were spot on, putting the ball far left of the hole and causing it to change direction and gradually increase its momentum. 

As you can see in the video below, Rose got the line spot on and sunk the ball effortlessly and with ease.

We've all dreamt of sinking a putt like this, haven't we?

This all cleared the way for one of the tournament's most stunning moments so far, as the ball rolled almost effortlessly into the hole.

It seems like Bay Hill may not be such of a hill to climb with shots like that.

The spectacular birdie puts the Englishman in joint 5th place as of writing this article, alongside the likes of Tyrell Hatton and Zack Johnson on -1, while Francesco Molinari is currently in the lead with a score of -4 going into the weekend.

With three more days left in the tournament, the Birdie Machine looks to be a well-oiled contender.

The 36-year-old Englishman has 20 professional wins to his name, with seven of them being on the PGA Tour, and nine of them being on the European Tour.

Others have come in the Japan Golf Tour, the Sunshine Tour, the PGA Tour of Australasia, and four others.
