Watch Paul Casey shank his approach shot but make par anyway

Watching somebody shank the ball is usually something of a somber, awkward affair. But it's always slightly more encouraging when a tour player hosel-rockets one into nowhere. We start thinking: Maybe the rest of us aren't so bad, after all.

Webb Simpson is one of the few tour players with a reputation for hitting the odd shank, and now we can add Paul Casey to that list. Casey hit a stone-cold shank on Rivera's 13th hole on Sunday from 155 yards.  #iframe:https://vine.co/v/OQ6UieWmzOx/embed/simple|||
