Playing the par-4 sixth, the Aussie found himself with a tricky lie on the edge of a fairway bunker. He semi-shanked his escape, sending his ball hurtling towards the out of bounds stakes… only for it to cannon back off a spectator’s legs, and bounce onto the green.

Leishman later tweeted: “Sometimes it’s better to be (extremely) lucky than good!”
