Drew Nesbitt makes par after shirtless swing from water hazard

By

On the cusp of missing the cut, Drew Nesbitt looked to be in trouble Friday at the Honda Classic when his first swing on the sixth hole sent his ball to the edge of one of PGA National’s many water hazards.

Nesbitt, who was at even-par at the time, seemed unfazed by the positioning of the ball as he rolled up his pant legs, took off his shirt and hat and walked up to the water’s edge to take his second swing.

His second stroke carried the ball out of the water to the left fairway just 50 yards shy of the hole. Another swing — after he rolled down his pants and put on his shirt and hat — brought Nesbitt within 1 yard of the hole. The 23-year-old Canadian sank the putt for par.

Nesbitt finished the second round 1-over 71 and made the cut on the number at 2 over.

Two holes later, Nesbitt performed another miracle with a water hazard when the ball skipped over the water on one bounce after his second shot to land 33 yards short of the par-4 No. 8. He bogeyed the hole, which put him at 1-over.

Nesbitt’s noteworthy performance on the sixth and eighth holes can be watched below.
