In golf, it's often said, "it's better to be lucky than good."
Make no mistake about it -- players at the highest level are insanely good. But, it's also nice to occasionally get that stroke of good fortune.
That's what happened for South African players Dylan Fritelli and George Coetzee in the third round of the European Tour's China Open on Saturday.
On the par-5 18th hole, both players elected to go for the green in two.
Both players hit less than ideal shots that made a beeline for the grandstands.
In both cases, the balls caromed off the grandstand and onto the green, leaving each player with unlikely eagle putts.
Here's a look at the two shots:
Coetzee would make the eagle, while Fritelli would "settle" for a birdie.
