Luckiest shot ever?

We have reported a lot of lucky shots over the years but this latest one really must be up there. Thomas Detry was staring down the barrel of a disaster at the Nedbank Golf Challenge on Friday when lady luck smiled down on him.

Beef’s Foooore Hole Challenge

Everyone loves Beef Johnson, what’s not to like? He is a lovely chap and is nice to everyone both on and off the course and boy can he play golf.
