You have to see this lucky shot by Brandt Snedeker to believe it

March 19, 2015

The week of St. Patrick's Day seems like an appropriate time to see something lucky happen on the PGA Tour, and the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational delivered. However, Brandt Snedeker's remarkable bit of good fortune didn't involve any four-leaf clovers, but rather a bunch of rocks.

Snedeker's approach shot to the par-4 18th hole during the opening round at Bay Hill came up short. But instead of his ball going in the water, it took not one, but two bounces off the rocks guarding the green and rolled to within six feet of the hole. You really have to see it to believe it:

Sadly, Snedeker didn't take full advantage of his incredible break. He missed the birdie putt and had to settle for par -- not that he's complaining.
