VIDEO: Harris English’s ball caroms off the hazard stake, stays out of water


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.

So lucky

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.
