The competition on the PGA Tour is as serious as it gets. But, luckily, the players don't always take themselves so seriously.
 
On Thursday, during the first round of the CareerBuilder Challenge out in La Quinta, California, Tour winner Grayson Murray found a deep, greenside bunker on the par-5 16th hole at the PGA WEST Stadium Course. 
 
Rather than carefully and methodically watch his steps as he climbed down into the bunker, Murray threw caution to the wind and decided to treat the steep slope into the bunker as if it were a slide at a playground.

The light-hearted moment paid off -- Murray birdied the hole.
 
Murray's slide reminded us of another fantastic slide in the annals of professional golf history. 
 
That would be none other than Phil Mickelson during the second round of the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.
 
 
Good times.
