Right before Talor Gooch took his first tee shot of 2022 – and first since notching his maiden PGA Tour at the RSM Classic – he dodged a bullet (well, a traveling golf ball, but close enough) by inches.
A wayward shot from someone else in Round 1 of the Sony Open nearly nailed the FedExCup points leader in the you-know-where. However, it miraculously went directly through his legs. Gooch, like the rest of us, couldn't believe what happened.

Gooch, however, took advantage of avoiding disaster and shot 3-under 67. He finished the day at T-39.
