Mackenzie Hughes is two shots off the lead at the 2021 U.S. Open when one of the weirdest things I've ever seen on a golf course happened. On the 11th hole, Hughes hit a ball into a tree and it didn't come down. It just sat stuck on a branch.
Hughes' first shot a the 11th bounced off a cart path and wound up in the tree. He couldn't believe it:
That's insane. What are the odds of that actually happening? It just stuck there.
In the end he took a drop and a one stroke penalty, and wound up with a double bogey on the hole. That took him from 4-under to 2-under and put him three strokes off the lead.
The last round at Torrey Pines is rapidly devolving with a lot of guys running into some awful shots. Louis Oosthuizen is holding a tight lead over Jon Rahm but that could change any minute.
