South Korean golfer Byeon-Hun An hit a 299-yard drive down the right side of the fairway on the sixth hole at TPC Sawgrass Thursday, leaving himself a 95-yard approach shot to the pin, set in the right side of the green.

An tried to pitch a shot over the tree, but it clipped a frond and got stuck high above the course.
An’s ball was unplayable, forcing him to take a penalty stroke and drop. He still managed to get up and down to save bogey.
