How do you make an eagle with a penalty stroke? This is how
We start by saying that unfortunately, there is no video of what Stephan Jaeger did on his final hole on Friday at the Web.com Tour's Rust-Oleum Championship. But it did, in fact, happen. Here's proof:
Yep, that's an eagle with a penalty stroke -- and a lost ball in the water -- on the 542-yard par 5 at the Ivanhoe Club. Here's what Jaeger had to say about it after.
“Well, to be honest, I wasn’t happy with the tee shot obviously, but dropped on a good number like 218. I hit this draw, 5-iron, just hoping for anywhere on the green, but it started looking really good,” said Jaeger, who shot 69 and heads into the weekend T-16. “I walked after it and after like 10 yards it disappeared and the crowd went nuts! And then I went nuts! Great feeling, finishing a round on a high note like that.”
Again, it's unfortunate there's no video. But we believe you, Stephan.
