Is this the luckiest bounce in golf?

Nacho Elvira enjoys the luck of the Spanish

This has simply got to be one of the luckiest golf bounces we have ever seen!

Spain's Nacho Elvira was playing his third shot on the Par five 9th (his final hole of the day) during his first round at the Nedbank Golf Challenge at the Gary Player Country Club.

His shot hit the downslope behind the green, and was heading for the water, when it hit a rock and bounced back onto the green.

It didn't go all Elvira's way, as he missed the birdie putt, but he will take par for this all day long.
