into the lake at number 18.
Before the weather went sour, we still saw some hard shots. Thursday seemed to be particularly difficult. During the first round, Tony Finau had a bad lie next to a bush. He tried to chip it back onto the fairway but overshot and ended up wet. That same day Sergio Garcia hit a shot into the water, but we all know Garcia can be creative, so he put on his rain suit, stood on the pine needle and hit his fully submerged ball right onto the fairway and saved par.
I can't say it enough, golf is hard, but pros like Garcia, these guys are good. They make amazing shots the rest of us wouldn't even dare try, let alone make par off of. They hit balls out of trees, out of water, out of deep bunkers without actually getting in, and then they go on to make par.
However when us amateurs give these same shots a try, they usually end in an epic fail. For example this guy who tried to remake a bunker shot that Tiger made in the 2012 British Open. I do give him props for trying, that is a tough shot any way you take it. Watch the video on loop here.
Remember: when you are out there on the links, everyone has bad days, and sometimes you just have to play for the love of the game, and if you are going to try a shot straight from The Tour, please film it so we can enjoy the results!
