Billy Horschel Fails to Mark Ball.. Watches Wind Roll it Off Green and into Water

Billy Horschel had a bizarre moment towards the end of his Masters Saturday round when his ball was blown off the 15th hole by strong Augusta winds.

The American golfer has had a good week at the first major of the year, hitting a 70 and 77 over the first two days to make the cut for the weekend.

And his Saturday hasn’t went too badly either, as he hit a 73 in those high winds to finish the day four over on the leaderboard.

Horschel probably won’t be in amongst it alongside Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and the rest of the challengers tomorrow.

But he will join Ernie Els in having one of the more unusual moments of the weekend.

As he lined up his fourth shot on the par five 15th hole, his ball was blown off into the water by the strong wind:

Luckily for Horschel, he pleaded with officials and was allowed to hit his third shot again – but he was unable to make the most of it and ended up bogeying the hole.
