Matt Jones plays from the hospitality tent

Powered by National Club Golfer


Whistling Straits’ major defence is over 1,000 bunkers.

Matt Jones, while leading midway through the third round, went left of those guarding the 9th fairway and ended up in a hospitality tent.

From where he played his approach, off some carpet and in amongst a load of revellers who couldn’t quite believe their luck.

“Actually I was happy where the ball was,” Jones said.

The spot where I had to have gone would have been much harder. And I hit a very good shot. I actually hit it exactly on the line I picked, I picked the wrong line. I thought the wind was off to the left, but it was straight down,” he explained.

“There was a lot of cameras clicking. And I just had to deal with it, because no one is going to be able to control a crowd like that. So I just hit my shot.”

He ended up making five.
