Sergio Garcia's Masterful Putt with a Wedge Demands Your Attention
Sergio Garcia managed to make a six-foot putt look amazing.
The video from PGATour.com shows the Spanish golfer trying to par No. 3 during the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship from Charlotte.
I know what you are thinking, because I thought much the same as I saw the video the first time: What's so special about a six-foot putt?
Things get interesting when you realize he is about to hit with a wedge—a club he picked out because there is some sort of obstruction on the green right in front of this ball.
The announcer says there is a spike mark inches away, which may have taken the ball at a weird angle after the shot.
If you can't go around it, you might as well go over it.
He pops the ball perfectly into the air and gets his par, giving us only the second-best shot he has hit this year.
It's at this point that we must remind you Garcia decided to climb into a perfectly good tree at the Arnold Palmer Invitational this past March. So it seems he is getting quite adept at hitting golf balls from perilous positions.
We'd also like to remind you that his plane had to make an emergency landing right before the tournament.
Lesser men may have been off their game, but not this guy. He is currently three-under and in 22nd place at the Wells Fargo. Just wake me when his ball gets stuck on a roof somewhere.
