Sergio Garcia plays miraculous recovery shot from a tree

Published 25/03/2013 | 10:03

Sergio Garcia has been scaling new heights over the weekend.

Garcia provided an amazing moment of entertainment at the Arnold Palmer Invitational yesterday when he climbed some 15 feet into an oak tree and played a shot back out to the fairway.

The diminutive Spaniard was already struggling at Bay Hill when his tee shot at No. 10 sailed right into the trees. Not only did it get stuck in the tree, it came to rest at the base of two large limbs.

Garcia looked up in the tree, stood on a golf cart and leapt to pull himself up into the tree.

Garcia studied his options before playing a one-handed, back-handed shot out to the fairway.

 He was playing with William McGirt, who was having a hard time believing what he was seeing.

 "I knew they were looking around the tree," McGirt said. "I didn't know they were looking in the tree. I looked over and Sergio is up in the air, and I'm trying to figure out what in the hell he's going to do. He called for a club. He's hugging the tree. And the ball comes flying out.

 "Are you kidding me?"

His creative play didn’t stop recording a double bogey on the hole and he was five over par with six to play when the hooter sounded to halt play with the threat of lightning.
