To call the finish at the LPGA's Reignwood Classic -- the tour's first tournament in Bejing -- dramatic would be the understatement of the year.
In case you missed it on Sunday, China's Shanshan Feng was battling with American Stacy Lewis for the title. On the final hole, Feng took an incredibly aggressive line with her second shot into the par 5. All indications were that the ball sailed too far right and drowned into the water hazard. But, in a split second, the ball shot out of the hazard, onto the green and hit the flag stick. Amazing stuff. See it for yourself:
That shot -- arguably the luckiest you'll ever see in golf considering the circumstances -- set up a tournament-winning eagle for Feng. It seemed everyone in China was over the moon with the home victory... everyone, that is, except -- understandably -- Lewis.
Lewis, the No. 3-ranked player in the world, was none too pleased with the way the tournament went and Feng's miracle result on 18 was just the icing on the cake.
"I feel like it was just taken from me," Lewis said later. "You’d like to win on a good shot, but, obviously, it wasn’t a good shot. It’s very frustrating. It was a frustrating day just with the crowds and dealing with all that. It was hard to play today."
Lewis wasn't done there. Later she took to Twitter to voice her frustrations on the Reignwood Classic, where players had to deal with heavy smog and eager fans snapping photos all week.
Here were the tweets Lewis send out before she decided hours later to take a break from Twitter:
Congrats to Shan Shan on the win, crazy shot at 18. Very disappointed in the fans in China this week. -- @Stacy_Lewis
Between all the cameras and cheering when I missed putts. It was just really hard to have fun out there. On to the next... -- @Stacy_Lewis
Btw what till you see the shot on 18 that won it! Lets just say it involved a rock and the flag stick... -- @Stacy_Lewis
And, one final tweet after receiving a lashing from folks on Twitter:
For those whose were actually supportive on twitter, sorry to say I will be signing off of here. I'm sorry I say what I believe. -- @Stacy_Lewis
Some will look at it as sour grapes from Lewis. But put yourself in her position -- you're about to win a tournament when what was clearly a bad shot from your fellow competitor suddenly turns into the shot of the tournament.
It's too bad Lewis has decided to take a break from Twitter for stating the facts.

So how do you celebrate your victory in the Presidents Cup, or salve your wounds in defeat?
Well, Angel Cabrera – who won his singles match against Phil Mickelson on Sunday – decided to check out the wigs that teammates Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel wore to the first tee on Thursday after their notorious haircuts earlier in the week. And we have to agree, El Pato looks much better as a brunette than a blonde.
Meanwhile, over at Team USA headquarters, Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson – a duo as formidable as it was laid back all week – celebrated the only way they knew how: by Dufnering with the Presidents Cup. Man, are those two guys party animals or what?
If you somewhow missed our coverage of the Presidents Cup, you can catch up on all the happenings right here.
Hey, all you federal employees in South Florida looking for something to do while you're out on furlough, check this out.
Davie Golf and Country Club just north of Miami is offering furloughed federal employees half-price green fees as long as the government shutdown continues.
''There are thousands of laid-off federal employees in South Florida, sitting home with no pay,'' Dave Harris, director of marketing at Davie Golf, told WFOR-TV, the CBS affiliate in Miami. ''So we decided to do something to show our support for them. Hopefully a relaxing game of golf will help our federal employees get through this difficult time.''
Both full-time and part-time federal employees can qualify for the discounted rate by showing their current federal employee ID and stating their furlough date. The discount deal is valid on weekdays only, though, so you'll probably have to spend Sunday watching golf on TV.
Davie G&CC, by the way, used to be known as Arrowhead Golf Club, which closed a few years ago and then was taken over by the Town of Davie. In the interim, the course was redesigned and regrassed, and the new course management is promoting the facility as a fun and economic golf experience.
Green fees range from $19 to $49 depending on the time of day and season, and the club says the 50-percent discount will average out to about $15 per player.
At the Presidents Cup Friday night, the players gulped down their dinner and went to bed early. The tournament staff puzzled over how best to handle the remainder of the event after not one but both of the first two days were interrupted by rain. And unofficial host Jack Nicklaus went to a hockey game.
Specifically, the Golden Bear – well known as quite the sportsman – dropped the ceremonial first puck at the Columbus Blue Jackets' opening game of the new season against the Calgary Flames. Dublin, Ohio, where Muirfield Village is located, is just outside Columbus.
Alas, the Blue Jackets couldn't perform like Nicklaus in pursuit of a green jacket, as they fell to the Flames, 4-3. That result, no doubt, was more popular with International team member Graham DeLaet, who's a huge Flames fan.
The best part of the night, though, had to be the jersey that that Jackets bestowed upon Nicklaus. Instead of the usual tradition of giving a celebrity a jersey with 00 or the year on it, the Golden Bear's jersey boasts the number 18. So even with the Jackets' loss, that made the evening a major success.
