Justin Thomas fell into the dugout facing an embarrassing situation in the third round of the US Open, before trying his best at fishing to steer the ball into the hole.
Justin Thomas provided a variety of entertainment with a great shot as he remained in contention in his third round of the US Open.
Thomas Bird finished first and made six pars in a row to be just four points short of his lead at Tory Pines, although he faced a tough job to save the tie in the short eighth when his tee towards the triple was short.
His ball sank to a thick bottom next to a bunker, and the world number two found it impossible to find a comfortable position to play his flag shot on the lower level of the green.
Holding on to steel with his ball high above his feet, Thomas, with his precarious balance, manages to make good contact with the second before nearly falling into the sand.

Having been saved by the throbbing of his arms from the awkward fall back, Thomas slid forward slightly and looked up and saw his ball rolling a few feet off the flag before stopping on the slope and turning toward the pit.
The players champion urged his ball to carry on with his impromptu fishing routine, and when he finally, smiling unharmed, came out of the dugout, he had nothing but tap on the ball to keep it in my sub for the tournament.
