PGA Championship: Webb Simpson chips into the hazard

Andrew Redington

It's not often you see a player chip into a hazard, but Webb Simpson did just that on Saturday.

The Oak Hill rough can be brutal, even around the greens. Webb Simpson found out the hard way when he caught too much ball on his chip shot from behind the green.

Simpson's ball landed by the pin, but with no spin and firming greens, it just wouldn't stop. The ball caught a slope and rolled off the green into some rocks in the water hazard on No. 5.

Simpson went on to make a triple bogey on the hole and is now seven strokes off the lead.
