Colt Knost asked how it was thinkable.  

Open Nobilo didn’t think he ever seen it.  

Curt Byrum was sure he hadn’t.  

Peculiar, then, was the achievement Will Zalatoris and Matt Fitzpatrick teamed up in during Thursday’s first around of the Scottish Open . The three former players turned analysts listed above, after all, were baffled on Golf Channel’s over the air, and you may have also been. And for Zalatoris and Fitzpatrick to pull all the things off, the circumstances needed to align just so on the 16th at the Renaissance Club. Remember:

— Fitzpatrick chipped the puppy’s fourth shot, from just short of the green, to 6 foot, 4 inches left while using the hole.  

— He marked his or her ball with a red-and-white striped poker chip from Harbor Town Golf Links.  

— Zalatoris chipped his fourth through the, from about 15 back yards to Fitzpatrick’s right, that will help, yes, 6 feet, 4 simple inches left of the location — and on top of the sign.  

Each of our chip shots needed to be identically distance. The poker kredit needed to be the right size. Zalatoris’ ball was required to include at the perfect speed.  

Zalatoris, actually laughed when he saw which.  

“This is something you rarely see every day, ” Knost said on the broadcast.    

“Oh, that’s great, isn’t they? ” Nobilo said.  

Indeed. So fun could be it that J. With regard to. Jakovac, the caddie on this third member of the threesome, Collin Morikawa, knelt because of take a picture with a mobile phone. Of course , the goal of the ornament to get the ball in a cup, not on a chip, as the question you may have is: What should you do?    

Unfortunately, the broadcast missed ahead to Zalatoris manufacturing his par putt, simply Fitpatrick making his, to neither player spoke to make sure you reporters afterward (though Zalatoris did post a picture in the Instagram account; more on which experts state in a sec). But you can easliy piece together what likely went wrong.  

Zalatoris probably lifted his sacked, penalty free, thanks to rule short minutes. 2a(3) , which allows over relief when a ball is either or on a movable obstruction on the putting green. Fitzpatrick then probably lifted ones mark, thanks to rule 15. 3c , which defines the direction to go should a ball producer be interfering with play, combined with where to then place it; for your broadcast, you could see that Fitzpatrick moved his poker kredit slightly to the right of exactly where it was.  

Finally, Zalatoris likely left his ball on the approximated spot where it was (also covered under rule 13. 2a(3)), putted, then Fitzpatrick likely moved his sign back and putted.      

Toll. Remember, too, that both equally golfers went toe which will toe about a month prior during the final round of their U. S. Open.  

Back to the image. After his round, Zalatoris posted the photo in the Instagram story and submitted:

“Well this led to weird @mattfitz94 @collin_morikawa. ”
