I think I saw a glimpse of the ball so it was a decent... lie. I bet a lot of trick shot guys are saying, that's nuthin'.

Surprised he got club on that ball at all.

For any of us mortals, take an unplayable in that situation! I can't tell you how many times I've tried something like that, only to end up losing the ball completely or just put it further into the bush. Plus, hard to tell, but you might be able to get to the other side of the cart path with an unplayable and then by taking relief from the cart path. Playing that shot puts triple (or worse) into play.

Thats actually a good play if the ball was sitting up. Id be just concerned about getting it over the trees in that scenario. A bad ricochet could have kept him over there.

Here's another angle. Somehow, I forgot the word, "bush". In this video, the audio gave me the impression he hit that pretty hard.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
