In case you missed it over the weekend, Frys.com Open winner Emiliano Grillo nearly smoked Rory McIlroy with a tee shot on the 296-yard, par-4 17th hole Saturday.
Not realizing the green hadn't yet cleared on the short par 4, Grillo ripped a tee shot just left of the green that came within inches of hitting McIlroy. You can see the video here (go to the 23-second mark):
McIlroy, who was having a difficult week with the putter, later joked that had the shot hit him, it would have "put me out of my misery."
Fortunately for Grillo, he overcame what could have been a bad situation to claim his first PGA Tour victory on Sunday in a playoff over Kevin Na.
"I didn't want to be the guy who almost hit Rory McIlroy this week," Grillo told the media after his win. "Kind of wanted to have this trophy and everybody know me because I have the trophy, and not because I almost hit him."
Golf is filled with rare feats: aces, albatrosses and 59s. But Amy Yang's final round Sunday at the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship might have been rarer still.
No one on the LPGA Tour had ever birdied every hole on the back nine in one round -- until Yang did it at Sky 72's Ocean course. Here's the approach and putt she had to sink to achieve that rare feat:
Yang's 27 tied the lowest nine-hole total in LPGA history. Her nine consecutive birdies matched the record set by Beth Daniel in 1999, and her 62 tied the course record set by Sung Hyun Park on Thursday.
Despite her outstanding, record-setting round, Yang still finished in a tie for fourth, two shots behind winner Lexi Thompson.
Even Yang was stunned and surprised by her hot finish, according to the quote she gave the Associated Press afterward.
"I don't know what just happened. Just can't believe. Shots were great. Early in the week I was shaky, but I don't know, this back nine was crazy good."
As if a shot out of a pot bunker wasn't difficult enough, how about executing a gorgeous shot... from between your legs?
