Talk about luck! There is a well-known trick to playing number 18 at St. Andrews. While the wide fairway may make you think that you have plenty of room to play, it is an illusion. It is an unwritten rule of the hole, try to stay on the right to avoid going out of bounds.
This weekend at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, golfer Guido Migliozi found out the hard way. While he had no chance of reaching the first place, the pressure was on to finish in the top-20. His previous hole was a disappointing one as he carded a bogey on 17. He needed to stay on track here in order to hang at 3-under.
The 24-year old Italian golfer hit his ball of the tee and it headed right where it bounced on the pavement out of bounds. The golf gods must have been looking out for Migliozzi as the ball continued to bounce two more times before heading back in play.
Luckily there is video evidence of this incredible stroke of luck at a course that can be unforgiving. Check out the video below:
Migliozzi finished up the hole with a birdie putt and finished with a 68 to grab the T17 spot.
