Kisner holes out from tough bunker at The Open

Watch Kevin Kisner hole out from one of Carnoustie's toughest bunkers on The Open's 6th hole

For the third time at The Open at Carnoustie, Kevin Kisner recorded a birdie or better on the par-5 6th hole. His eagle on the hole on Thursday jumpstarted his 5-under 66 round that allowed him to take the lead and his birdie on Sunday helped keep him in contention.

In the final round, Kisner's third shot on the 6th hole landed in the left greenside bunker just inches away from the lip. With his left foot roughly in line with his ball, Kisner holed out with a beautiful chip that bounced a few times before rolling in the cup.
