PGA Tour pro Joel Dahmen with the UNLUCKIEST of breaks from bunker

PGA Tour pro Joel Dahmen, who emotionally got his first win last year, had an unfortunate break over the weekend. 

In Kapalua at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, Dahmen was faced with shot in a deep bunker that guards the green. 

He made a solid connection and the ball rolls towards the hole but instead Dahmen, 34, gets an unfortunate break. 

The ball hits the flag stick and you'd think under normal circumstances it would roll in.

That would have seen him get his score to 15-under par which was still some margin off the lead on a bananas week of golf. 

"Almost jarred it," the commentator says. 

Dahmen is seen as one of the more good-humoured guys on the tour. 

His back-and-forths on Twitter with social media swing sniper Max Homa are quite amusing to witness. 

Dahmen's caddie Geno Bonnalie has detailed before how he gave up his job to go and caddie for his lifelong friend Dahmen.

A dream came true last March when he claimed his first PGA Tour win at Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship. 

Both caddie and player displayed all the feels when they got the win. 

Bonnalie saw the funny side of the scoring last week, stating that they needed to shoot a 51 on Sunday be in contention.
