Padraig Harrington -- a three-time major winner -- is one of the most creative and eccentric players in the game.

On Friday, during the second round of the Turkish Open, the Irishman found himself in a tough spot. He hit his approach shot on the par-4 hole left of the green and the ball nestled beside a tree.

It looked like Harrington was pretty much in jail. But that's when the artist got to work.

Check out how Harrington managed to pull off a remarkable par save:
