GIF: Thorbjorn Olesen's ball lands in the hole, then bounces out and rolls off the green

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

Thorbjorn Olesen was three under on the day when he reached the 174-yard eighth hole. He had eagled his previous hole, and on the par 3, he hit his first shot perfectly.

Too perfectly, it turns out.

Oleson's ball landed directly onto the bottom part of the pin, but instead of dropping into the cup for an ace, it took a horribly unlucky kick off the green, 74 feet away from the hole. From there, Olesen chunked his chip and two-putted for a bogey to drop him back to one under on the day.

Here it is in slow motion.

He may have gotten robbed here, but all's well that ends well: he recovered with a birdie on the next hole.
