Ryan Brehm was surfing when he hit the 17th hole at the Innisbrook Resort’s Copperhead course on Thursday.
He was 3 under par in 16 holes at the Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor, Florida, when he hit his tee shot on the 196-yard par-3 hole.
The shot floated in the air before landing near the pin. Brehm was asking him to carry, and he did. She took a big jump before settling down and rolling over to the cup.
Brehm quickly turned around and jumped up and down while handing out greetings to his fellow competitors and caddies in his group.
Brehm won the Puerto Rico Open last year, and outside of a T-14 at the Honda Classic three weeks ago, he has missed the cut in seven of his previous eight starts.
However, Brehm sits on top after the morning wave during the first round, shooting 5-under-par 66. He’s tied with Stephan Jaegar. Jordan Spieth and Lucas Glover each shot 4-under 67s.
