Carl Pettersson is gunning for his fifth PGA TOUR win on Sunday.

Chrysanthemums, or mums for short, are a staple of Southern plant life as fall approaches. Carl Pettersson met some up and close and personal on Sunday.

His opening drive went so far left that his ball landed in a row of potted mums. After a lengthy search, his ball was found ... and he was able to get his ball near the green. From 18 yards out, Pettersson chipped in for birdie to get to 13 under, only two back of Webb Simpson.

Petersson birdied the first hole three times this week.
