The benefit of PGA Tour players playing a course they’ve barely seen before offers the TV viewer potential for shots we’ve never seen before. Enter the WGC-Mexico Championship and short game wizard Jordan Spieth.

Spieth had turned around his second round with a birdie and eagle on the 14th and 15th holes at Club de Chapultapec when his approach on the 16th hole fell short of the green. From 30 feet, Spieth played a shot far left of the hole. It looked odd, but not to him. As the no. 6 player in the world talked toward the green, the ball started rolling back to the hole.
