SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Spencer Levin hit his drive at the par-5 15th into the jumping cactus in the waste area to the right of the fairway.
He used his belly putter to hit it backwards into the rough so he could play his third shot. His caddy, Mike Hicks, had to pick stickers off the side of his shirt and the back of his pants.
Levin's third shot found the water in the front of the green. He held the club over his head and then crouched down on his knees to compose himself.
The 27-year-old Californian, who had taken a six-stroke lead into the final round, went to the drop area and hit his fifth shot to 9 feet. He missed the putt on the right edge and made double bogey to drop back to 13 under.
