Tag Ridings Goes With the No-Look, One-Handed, Backwards Golf Shot

During round one of the Safeway Open, on the 4th hole, Tag Ridings was in a bit of trouble.

With his ball stuck in a awkward spot, which apparently wouldn’t allow a stance, Ridings was forced to hit his 4th shot one-handed with his back facing the hole.

It was the craziest golf shot of the day.

Ridings would go onto bogey the hole. But things would improve for Ridings – with birdies on 4 of the next 5 holes.
