Robert Streb found himself in a tough spot during the final round of the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday when he had to play the final nine holes without a putter.

Luckily, he knew how to "putt" with a wedge.

According to Mark Aumann of, Streb's putter broke when he tossed it toward his bag on the ninth hole. That didn't stop him from staying up near the top of the leaderboard, though.

Streb decided to use a wedge on putts for the rest of the round:

Although he didn't make every putt with the wedge, he did fairly well, all things considered. 

Remarkably, Streb managed to advance to a four-man playoff despite not having a putter. Danny Lee won the playoff and the tournament, although Streb did finish the fourth round with a five-under-par 65.
