Charley Hoffman had been cruising on Sunday at TPC River Highlands, perhaps on the way to a win. Standing on the 17th tee, he had a two-shot lead.

Then that tee shot found the water.

Hoffman took a drop and hit his third shot over the green at the par 4. He was unable to get up-and-down, and the double bogey erased his lead and left him in a tie with Marc Leishman at 14 under.

Leishman is done but Hoffman will have a chance at 18.
