Pro Uses Wedge as Putter, Advances to BMW Championship

Rory McIlroy Rallies to Win Deutsche Bank Championship
Rory McIlroy rallied to win the Deutsche Bank Championship to pick up his first PGA Tour victory of the 2016 season.

Aaron Baddeley narrowly advanced to the next stage of the FedEx Cup playoffs, and he did so with some trusty wedge putting.

Baddeley shot a four-over 75 during the fourth round of the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday at TPC Boston and finished three over for the tournament, tying for 67th. He still managed to finish 67th in the FexEx Cup standings, which sends him and the rest of the top 70 to the BMW Championship at Crooked Stick beginning Thursday.

But as you can see in the video below, Baddeley made a 12-foot par putt on the 18th using his wedge. It's uncertain how many holes Baddeley used the wedge as a putter, or why he did it -- it's against the rules to use a bent club, if that was the case -- but we will assume he had a logical reason for doing so. (Teryn Schaefer of the PGA Tour reports that Baddeley used his wedge as a putter for the final four holes.)
