Sahith Theegala intentionally shanked shots at the range.
No, seriously. When he attended Pepperdine University, Theegala used to smack shots to warm up his playing partners. He would then leave them behind on the course.
It’s difficult to believe that Theegala had practiced his shot, which he executed on Saturday in the third round at the Wells Fargo Championship held at Quail Hole Club.
His tee-shot ended up on the pine straw left of the fairway at the 11th. A tree prevented him from taking a normal stance, so he swung his club lefty and flipped it over.
What is the Lefty Way? !

Theegala’s recovery shot was almost successful, but he couldn’t make the par-putting after he pitched his shot at 13 feet. It was an amazing recovery shot.
Theegala is now 1 under par for the tournament after shooting a 71 on his third round.
