At the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Shane Lowry made a sensational second shot on the 18th hole with the help of a very tall tree. After he wedged his ball across the course, it so happened to clip this fortuitously placed tree and land about ten feet from the hole. Watch the luck of this Irishman play out on video here.

In the wake of his victory, Lowry was only too grateful to his arboreal ally. He went back to the 18th hole to share the love by heartily embracing its trunk. Now, who ever said golf wasn’t good for the environment?
