File this as yet another perk of the tour pro.
When we amateurs hit a stray shot, volunteers and spotters aren’t lining the fairways – focused on finding players’ errant golf shots. But tour players have these sort of luxuries.
One of those advantages is the ability to use grandstands around a golf hole to your advantage. Jose Maria Olazabal, making a comeback to competition as he’s playing in his first PGA Tour Champions event, probably wasn’t planning to use the grandstand like this. But it made for a great bank shot.
As long as Ollie called his shot, we’re OK with the result:
Off the grandstand, on the green.
He didn't plan it, but rookie Jose Maria Olazabal will take it. pic.twitter.com/5F3EMeAWny
