Golf Ball Lands In Fan’s Pocket
I’ve played a lot of golf in my time and my golf balls have ended up in many different places: rough, sand, water, trees, plants, rocks and occasionally the fairway or even the green. But I can honestly say I’ve never seen anyone hit a golf ball that ended up in someone’s pocket…until now.
The top-ranked golfer in the world, Rory McElroy hit a tee shot that went too far right and went into the gallery. Somehow it landed in a spectator’s pocket. The general rule of golf is that you must play the ball where it lands, but thankfully it didn’t apply here. Rory got a free drop, play continued and that fan will have a story to tell forever.
