Sergio Garcia nearly holed a putt from 130 feet. Seriously.
Sergio Garcia faced a 130-foot putt during the second round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Sorry, make that 130 feet and two inches, according to PGA Tour's Shot Tracker. The oddity occurred on the par-5 12th hole at Trump National Doral, and the Spaniard stuck with the flat stick despite facing a distance that most amateurs couldn't reach with a 60-degree wedge.
Garcia did make one slight change before attempting the eagle bomb. He ditched his normal claw grip and went standard for a bit more pop -- and he nearly drained it. Watch:
Doral is no stranger to putts from deep. In 2014, Tiger Woods made one from 91 feet and 7 inches on Doral's fourth hole. As long as that was, though, Garcia's attempt was nearly 40 feet longer.
Shot Tracker had Garcia's putt that burned the hole traveling 137 feet, five inches. That's pretty good touch to go with a fantastic line. We'd like to tell you he made the comebacker for one of the best two-putts of his career, but alas, he had to settle for par -- and one of the more unusual three-putts you'll ever see.
