Rory gets luckyTo see the rest of these unbelievable shots, go here! Source : Swing by Swing.It certainly seemed like Rory’s tee shot from a tournament in Dubai was headed straight for the water hazard. By sheer luck, he landed right on the cart bridge and popped up over to the other side where he had a wonderful lie for a recovery shot. Got to love those cart paths. Fuzzy ZoellerIn this clip, we see golfer Fuzzy Zoeller strike a tee shot that looks less than impressive at first. It lands beyond even the fringe of the green and into the surrounding rough. It stays there for a while, until it miraculously frees itself and rolls down the sloping green right into the cup. Just like he planned. Leif OlsonThis shot makes it seem like Olson had billiards on his mind when going through his round. This tee shot lands north of the pin but rolls back down the green until it strikes the shot of a previous player. By sheer luck, the balls hit each other in a way that the tee shot shoots straight for the hole for the ace. He won a new BMW with that shot!
A little luck never hurt anybody, especially on the golf course. We can all think of times when wayward shots actually turned out to be the highlight of our round due to a fortunate bounce or break. Even the pros can use a little luck sometimes. Here is our list of the 10 amazingly lucky breaks we found, from professionals and amateurs alike. Darren ClarkeFormer Ryder Cup Captain Darren Clarke got away with murder on this approach a few years back. His shot looked like the only place it was going to end up was in the water. The ball danced around a couple of cliff faces before nestling itself right on the edge of the playable surface. All he could do was smile Matt JonesAustralian Matt Jones became friendly with a ridge of rocks during the third round of the 2013 PGA Championship. He ricocheted off and his ball shot towards the pin, only to settle down on the fringe and slowly roll back even closer to the hole. The golf gods were looking down on him that day.
