Who knew golf had nail-biters like this?
Golfer Jordan Spieth had viewers on the edge of their seats with a dangerous, cliffâ€™s edge shot Saturday at the 2022 Pebble Beach Pro-Am tournament in California.
With one foot inches from the edge, the three-time major champion managed to connect with the ball and send it soaring over the green.
â€œIt was by far the most nerve-wracking shot Iâ€™ve ever hit,â€ he said in an interview afterward.
â€œIt was awfully close. Iâ€™ve never had a life and death situation on a shot before,â€ he added. â€œSo I thought I wouldnâ€™t really have nerves the rest of the day after that one.â€
â€œGolf is supposed to be the place you come to relax,â€ his interviewer, CBS Sportsâ€™ Amanda Balionis, commented. â€œNot to get your adrenalin pumping.â€
A clip showing an aerial view of the shot had racked up more than a million views by Sunday.
Spieth ended up winning the Pebble Beach tournament Sunday. It was the ninth PGA Tour title of his career.
