Lee Westwood took an unusual route down the 15th fairway in the second round of the British Masters, but he still managed to make a par-five after negotiating a house!
Westwood is normally one of the most consistent drivers of the ball on the European Tour, but he sliced his tee shot so far right on the 15th that his ball cleared the bushes lining the fairway, narrowly avoiding the out-of-bounds markers.
Pitching back over the shrubbery to the fairway was tricky, while his view of the remainder of the hole was blocked by a house, but he decided the direct route was the best option to get his ball back into play.
He was fortunate to draw a decent lie in the lush rough, and he manged to make good contact to clear the house and watch his ball sail "over the conservatory" and back onto the desired route.
Although he could not quite reach the fairway, he had done enough to leave himself nothing more than a wedge to reach the green, and he was happy to walk to the next tee with a five on his card.
