Sergio Garcia took an unusual detour on the par-4 10th hole on Sunday at Bay Hill when he shimmied up a tree to hit his second shot, which was lodged in the crook of said tall bush.
Not long after taking a back-handed whack at the ball, jumping down from his perch, and carding a double-bogey for his troubles, Garcia withdrew from the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Of course, Matt Every will likely claim the prize for shot of the week, after holing this eagle shot from the water on the par-4 third:

Garcia, by the way, also carded a quadruple-bogey 9 on the sixth hole on Sunday and was 5-over for the week when he withdrew after 12 holes.
