VIDEO: Sergio Garcia hit his submerged ball at The Honda Classic



Sergio Garcia felt like splashing around on the par-5 18th at PGA National's Champion course in Round 1 of The Honda Classic.

Garcia's tee shot wound up in the right-side water hazard, his ball barely submerged in the hazard. Undeterred, he decided it was worth a shot. After putting on his waterproof gear, Garcia stepped in and took a swing.



Garcia got his ball back in the fairway, some 25 yards closer to the hole. He wound up making par at his ninth hole of the day, eventually shooting 2-over 72 on a windy day at PGA National.
