Video: Sergio Garcia’s one-handed, backward shot from out of a tree onto the green


 

At the Arnold Palmer Invitational earlier today, Sergio Garcia managed to land his ball way up in the crook of a tree on the 10th hole. What happens next is amazing and everything.

But even better (we think) is the way everyone plays it straight — from the analysts, who mark up the screen at 1:23 in to identify the ball’s location and again at 2:53 when they scribble on the tree and say, “I’m worried about that limb right there … ” to Garcia, who executes the shot then hops down from the tree like it was absolutely nothing.

Play on the Bay Hill golf course was soon suspended by weather. By then, Garcia, who quadruple-bogey 9 a few holes earlier, had decided to withdraw from the tournament.
