A spectator got nutmegged from 300 yards away at the KLM Open and didn't even notice

A one in a million shot.

DENMARK’S MORTEN MADSEN took home just under €70,000 for his fifth place finish on at the KLM Open this weekend, shooting a fine final round of 67.

However, there was one shot in particular during his final round that stood out, with his tee shot on the par 4 18th hole one of the most bizarre we’ve ever seen.

The Dane sliced his shot off to the right side rough, but after it caught a grassy bank, it started to roll back down the hill in the direction of some spectators.

After a few ducked out of the way and narrowly avoided the hopping ball, it took a dramatic curl down the bank, before rolling perfectly (and we mean perfectly) through one man’s legs.

There’s something oddly satisfying about it.


In the end Belgium’s Thomas Pieters took the title and the €300,000 in prize money, after his five under par round of 65 on the final day.

Simon Thornton was the best of the Irish on 11 under, Padraig Harrington finished on six under, while Peter Lawrie was three shots further back.
