SKIMMER! Definitely The Luckiest Golf Shot Of The Year

Danny Willett must have thought the worst when he watched his ball head straight for the water. Fortunately he managed one of the luckiest breaks of the year.

Lucky shot

This occurred during the first round of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Willet is in a share for second with Ernie Els, who has cured his debilitating yips – view here – and fellow South African Trevor Fisher.

Fortune favours the brave as they say. Alternatively, you could do what Darren Clarke did and live up to a national stereotype; ‘Luck of the Irish’ was never more applicable to this shot..
