Watch: Mackenzie Hughes hits ball into tree in final round of U.S. Open at Torrey Pines

·1 min read

“Get in the hole!” and “Brooksie!” are chants you expect to hear at golf tournaments these days, but you don’t expect to hear “shake that tree!”

For Sunday at the 121st U.S. Open it was par for the course.

On a day where 10 players were at one point within a shot of or tied for the lead, things got wacky when contender Mackenzie Hughes hit his ball into a tree on the par-3 11th.

Sitting T-2 at 4 under and two shots behind leader Louis Oosthuizen, Hughes hit a wayward shot left of the 11th green that hit the cart path and then jumped into the tree. His ball somehow nestled between two twigs on a branch.
