(Newser) – Faced with a ball that landed in a tree, Sergio Garcia today did what pretty much no golfer would do, ever: As Business Insider reports, he climbed about eight feet up, found his balance, then hit the ball behind him with a one-handed shot that earned him a roar from the crowd and eventually a double bogey. He then jumped out of the tree, causing one announcer to award him “a 9.8 on the dismount.”

Golf is so boring that a guy standing in a tree for 3 minutes is the most exciting thing that has ever happened.

I never think to look in the trees for my lost golf balls.

Loser couldn't even make it in the hole.
