Wes Bryan driver

Some golfers have become famous for what they can do with ridiculously bad lies, including Phil Mickelson, but Wes Bryan upped the degree of difficulty at the Wells Fargo Championship Friday at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington, NC. On the 557-yard par-five sixth hole, Bryan managed to go well out of bounds to both sides of the course and still make birdie.

Bryan first hit his tee shot into a parking area, which is usually a sign of a disastrous hole. He then moved two vans for his second shot, which he knocked into the spectator gallery on the other side of the course. Bryan then moved spectators to hit a perfect third shot that dropped him close to the pin, and sank a short putt for the most insane birdie you may ever see. Here’s how Shane Bacon called it on the PGA Tour Live feed:

As Bacon noted, this hole involved a whole lot of work:

That’s unbelievable. Props to Bryan for making the bold choice to hit driver off that surface (he’s lucky he didn’t catch it wrong and break the club), which gave him enough distance that he was able to hit the third chip shot (even from another terrible lie). And credit to him for staying calm despite how disastrously this hole started for him.

Bacon’s call of “The greatest hole played in the history of the game” certainly has some merit to it, too. It’s not a textbook approach, but it’s one that worked out in the end. And we definitely should call this kind of rope-to-rope approach “a Bryan,” as he suggests.

Also, Bryan wound up notching his third birdie in a row on this hole, showing what he’s capable of when he gets hot. He wasn’t quite able to maintain that pace, finishing a one-over 73 in the first round and a five-over 77 in the second, putting him tied for 125th. Still, he produced one of the most memorable holes we’ll ever see.
