European Tour professional JB Hansen produced a shot many of us are all too accustomed to playing in the weekend Medal - only the Dane's SHANKED bunker shot ended up going straight next to the pin for a tap-in par. 

Hansen found himself in the greenside bunker some 30 yards to the right of the pin on the par-4 18th.

It appeared as though Hansen's ball had found a nice smooth lie, and it was also on the upslope - a partnership you would think would lead to an automatic up-and-down par save for a European Tour professional. 

That's exactly what happened, but the way it happened was a very different story as Hansen shanked his ball into the right side of the bunker, but it popped up and ran all the way up to the pin.

It was a shot that led many of us to question why this sort of luck never happens to us when we're out there battling on the course.

One golf fan tweeted: "He toe shanked it! Nice! I got that shot." 

Another fan wrote: "The golf God give and the golf God taketh back. Don't try to understand."

One golf fan commented: "I don't understand why he looks p***** I would have been jumping for joy that's probably better outcome then if he would have hit it the way he wanted to LOL."

Another wrote: "In the words of the Oleta Adam's song, I don't care how you get here..."

Hansen went on to finish in a tie for 17th.
