Thomas Aiken understands what I'm saying. On Friday at Muirfield, Aiken found his ball just outside the bunker on the par-4 18th, but without a stance he had to come up with some way to play it.
His final decision? Stand in the bunker, which was a good three feet below his ball, and putt the golf ball while choking up on the putter.
He pulled the shot off, but couldn't convert the next par putt, posting a second round 80 that will most likely force him to miss the cut at the Open.
Still, a cool shot to see and a good example of just how different links golf can be.
