Brice Garnett took advantage of the new rules of golf with a monster birdie during the second round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Garnett carded an eventful one-under 72 on the Plantation Course in Kapalua, where he recovered from four bogeys in his first eight holes to produce a back-nine fightback in windy conditions.
The American holed a 20-foot gain at the 11th and found himself on the par-four 13th green in two, but some 70 feet from the flag and looking at a tricky-looking two-putt.
With changes to the rules in 2019 stating that a player can leave the flagstick in the hole when playing a shot from the putting green, Garnett didn't move the pin when lining up his birdie putt.
Garnett saw his ball catch a ridge and gather speed as it raced towards the hole, only for it stop abruptly when it hit the flag and drop in for an unlikely birdie.
