James Hahn wins PGA Tour playoff after opponent hits ball into a fan's shoe

May 8, 2016

James Hahn entered the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow this weekend having missed eight consecutive cuts, but he won his second career PGA Tour event in a playoff with Roberto Castro after squandering a chance to win in regulation.

With a one-shot lead, Hahn three putted the 72nd hole to drop into a playoff with Castro. The two players returned to the 18th tee, where Castro blasted his drive left of the fairway and into a creek. He dropped the ball on the side of a hill and had a tremendously difficult shot with the ball above his feet, and hit it over the green and into the crowd - where it landed inside a shoe.

Castro was able to remove it from the shoe, fortunately, and managed to get up and down for bogey. Hahn, though, struck a beautiful second shot in the heart of the green and two putted to win the tournament.
