Bryson DeChambeau uses math and physics in his game more than just about anyone else on the PGA Tour, but that doesn’t mean he won’t take a good ol’ fashioned lucky bounce when it comes his way, either.

During the second round of the Genesis Open, DeChambeau hit his tee shot on the par-3 sixth hole well over the back of the green, but his ball still ended up about 7 feet from the hole thanks to a timely ricochet off a fan.

DeChambeau couldn’t cash in on the birdie opportunity, settling for a two-putt par, but, realizing it could’ve been much worse, he rewarded the fan with a glove and a hug.
