Two week's ago at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, Frenchman Victor Dubuisson lost in the final to Jason Day, a match that went 23 holes.

Though he lost the match, Dubuisson gained fans worldwide for his jaw-dropping Seve Ballesteros-esque short game skills when the match went extra holes.

On the 19th and 20th holes, respectively, Dubuisson made the most unlikely of pars, getting up and down from junk -- or, on the first of those holes, a cactus plant -- to keep the match going.

On Tuesday, to commemorate Dubuisson's unbelievable shots in the Match Play, Titleist presented the 23-year-old golfer with a wedge emblazoned with a cactus plant. See the tweet below from @TitleistonTour:

 

 

The idea of this is pretty cool. If Dubuisson chooses to make this a "game" wedge, whenever he finds himself in a difficult spot, facing a tough chip or pitch, he can merely look at the cactus on the wedge and think, "I've seen worse situations and pulled off the shots!"
