WATCH: This is one of the luckiest golf shots of all-time

The Nedbank Golf Challenge has given us a few memories this past weekend. This includes a duel between a mongoose and a snake, Charl Schwartzel hitting golf balls from his hotel room, and finally, one of the luckiest shots of all-time.

Nacho Elvira is a gentleman who hit this shot, and man, it’s a head tilter. The ball looks as if it’s heading towards the water but ends up ricocheting off the edge of the green, and bounces backward. The ball would end up on the green after it clearly looked like it was heading in the liquid of death.

Imagine hitting a shot, knowing that it’s bad, just for it to end up on the green anyway. I’m one of those folks who would rather hit some memorable shots and experience memorable holes than worry about my score.

In this instance, although Elvira didn’t win the tournament (one of the top golfers in the world, Brendan Grace won), he has a shot he can carry with him. It would be shocking if the European Tour doesn’t keep this for their yearly video archives.

If there’s a “Most Bizarre Shot of the Year Award”, this one would be an early front-runner. Well played Nacho!
