It was a strange day for JB Holmes at the Hero World Challenge.
The American had started well with an eagle at the par-5 sixth hole, before fluffing his first shot from behind the seventh green.
Strangely though, he holed his next attempt to claim an unorthodox par.
He had opened up a three-shot lead, but out of nowhere, disaster struck.
When his ball ended up at the edge of a 12th green water hazard, instead of opting for a drop shot, Holmes attempted to play the ball where it lay.
Deciding it was playable, he removed his shoes and entered the water. Looking back, he’ll probably wish he hadn’t.
The world number 27’s first swing scooped right under the ball through the mud, and you can see his confusion as it winds up slightly behind where it was to begin with.
He switched clubs and greened it on his next attempt, all but losing his lead with a double bogey on the par-3 hole.
You can view his attempt below.
By the time his round was over, that lead was long gone, and some more errors at the greens saw Holmes drop five shots in the last seven holes.
This left him seven-under, and he finished the day disappointingly tied for seventh.
Golf is a funny old game.
