Every Wednesday during Masters week, Augusta National hosts a par-three tournament on their signature par-three course for all of the players in the field. Although the par-three tournament was cut short due to thunderstorms in the area, I witnessed one of the wildest things I’ve ever seen on the golf course.
Sam Burns, an up-and-coming superstar on the PGA Tour, hit an errant tee shot on one of the holes, as the ball sailed into the crowd.
Surprisingly enough, a fan caught the ball.
Unsure what to do with it, you could hear a fan screaming:
“THROW IT OUT!”
Sure enough, the fan tossed the ball onto the green, and it tracked closer and closer to the hole…
For a near hole-in-one.
Now I have no idea how this would be played in real life, because I’ve never seen anything like this before.
But how badass would it be if that man was responsible for a hole-in-one?
It would be absolute PANDOMONIUM.
