Bill Haas was put in a difficult situation during Saturday’s round of the Hero World Challenge. And “play it as it lies” he did.
Haas’ drive on the par-4 18th got caught in a plant and rested about three inches above the waste area. Instead of taking an unplayable, Haas took a mighty swing.
Amazingly, Haas advanced the ball — although he took the plant with him — and then got up and down for par and a third-round 68. He starts the final round at 15-under and four shots behind leader Bubba Watson.
