VIDEO: Rickie Fowler hits a ball into someone’s yard at Quail Hollow


Rickie Fowler's quest to win the Wells Fargo Championship for the second time and on Mother's Day for the second year in a row took a big blow on Sunday at Quail Hollow Club with a poor approach shot to the par-5 seventh.

Fowler went for the green in two on the long hole, and he sprayed his second shot well right of the green, finding a rock wall surrounding a water hazard to the right of the putting green. After the ball ricocheted off of the wall, it flew and landed in the backyard of a house which sat near the green. It was a big house.

But being rich doesn't make someone living on a prestigious golf course immune to coming out and getting a free souvenir in their yard. One of the people in the home -- presumably the owners -- came out to pick up the ball.

Fowler went on to make double-bogey 7 on the hole, dropping four shots behind leader James Hahn, who is seeking his second PGA Tour title.
