Sergio Garcia pushed his tee shot on the 10th hole and found his ball in an unusual place, up a tree.  After identifying the ball as his, the Spaniard decided his best option was to climb the tree and take a swing - rather than take a penalty shot and drop. 
Quite honestly, it was one of the best shots of the tournament.  You can watch video of the shot here. 
However, it didn't really help him too much as he still ended up with a double-bogey 6 on the hole and subsequently withdrew from the tournament two holes later.
He may have still had the last laugh however as he withdrew right before a lengthy and severe weather system delayed the final round.
