Pablo Larrazabal's tricky lie
Series: Golf Buzz
Published: Thursday, May 22, 2014 | 5:43 p.m.
Poor Pablo Larrazabal. The guy can't seem to catch a break lately.
Just a few weeks ago, we brought you this story of Larrazabal getting attacked by hornets and jumping into the nearest pond during the European Tour's Maybank Malaysian Open.
On Thursday in the BMW Championship at Wentworth, Larrazabal faced another situation -- and thankfully this one was humorous instead of painful.
Check out Larrazabal's tweet below, where you get an inside look at where his golf ball settled after his third shot on the 18th hole:
Why all the crazy things happen to me? That was my lie for my 3rd shot on 18th... Hehehehe pic.twitter.com/BGsxYRwseB

Thankfully for the spectator, Larrazabal didn't have to, "play it as it lies," in this instance.
Larrazabal would make par on that par-5 18th for a 3-under 69 that had him tied for 14th in the weather-interrupted first round.
