What could’ve been a smelly situation became a funny moment during Thursday’s opening round of the 103rd PGA Championship.
Playing the par-4 18th hole on Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s Ocean Course, Sebastián Muñoz hit a wayward drive that was flirting with the gallery of fans and grandstands down the left side of the fairway. The shot cleared the fans but found its way to the bottom of a trash bag.
Muñoz was in good spirits as he approached the errant shot. After hearing his options, he reached in, grabbed the ball and then gave it away to a (lucky?) fan.
Sebastián Muñoz holed it … into the trash can.

He took his free drop, made the green in regulation and saved par.
