Marc Leishman makes most unlikely birdie you'll ever see

Marc Leishman

They say every golfer needs a bit of luck. 

Marc Leishman got a huge dose of the stuff during yesterday’s opening round of the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston.

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.

That set up an unlikely, 56-foot birdie chance for Leishman – who, incredibly, converted it!

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

We’ll say!
