If Harris English goes on to win the Waste Management Phoenix Open, he can thank the yellow water hazard marker on the par-5 15th at TPC Scottsdale.
STORY CONTINUES BELOW
After a massive drive of 346 yards, English had 218 yards to the pin in search of an eagle. However, he hit the ball a little heavy and flailed it to the right. It was destined for the water hazard guarding the green, but it caromed off the hazard stake, which is just a few inches wide, and wound up in a greenside bunker.
He managed to hit his sand shot to 9 feet with a look for birdie, but he had to settle for a fortunate par with just three holes to play.
If there has been a luckier break in golf in 2016, we haven't seen it.
THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
