VIDEO: Matt Jones hits from hospitality tent at the 2015 PGA Championship

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. -- Matt Jones didn't find one of the 1,000 or so bunkers at Whistling Straits with his tee shot on the par-4 ninth on Saturday at the PGA Championship. He found a much more compelling spot: a hospitality tent.

The Aussie's drive went went left of the fairway, winding up on some carpet outside one of the hospitality tents lining the left side of the hole. That's not a hazard, however, and can be in play if the player can advance the ball. Jones, just some 165 yards from the hole from where he stood, decided to take a crack at it.

Jones' shot escaped the horde of high rollers in the hospitality tent, but didn't wind up on the green. The leader went on to make a bogey on the hole, dropping to a one-shot lead as he turned in 1-under 35.
