2013 U.S. Open: Watch a fan catch Lee Westwood’s errant shot

Catching a foul ball at a baseball game happens all the time. A fan intentionally catching an errant golf ball at a golf tournament, however, is a rarity.

That's exactly what happened on the sixth hole at Merion on Thursday in Round 1 of the 2013 U.S. Open.

Lee Westwood was hitting his second shot into the par-4 sixth hole at the East course, when he flared it to the right. Disappointed with the result, he stared it down to the end as it landed in a grandstand. Expecting the ball to ricochet out to somewhere else, Westwood was shocked to see a fan catch it.

The look on Westwood's face after the shot was priceless -- one of shock, however, it wasn't clear if he was surprised how the shot went or that the kid caught it.

Westwood retrieved the ball from the kid to take a drop adjacent to the grandstands, then made a par. When the hole was done and Westwood had his par, he signed the ball and gave it back to the kid. Both got a standing ovation.
