Sensationally, the ball then landed in the fan’s cup holder and commentators and McCarthy himself joked it was a hole-in-one.
McCarthy said: “Long-range hole-in-one. That’s a hole-in-one.”
Fans online could not believe the shot and were quick to reference Adam Sandler’s 1996 comedy classic Happy Gilmore.
One said: “Miracle.”
Another added: “They made Shooter McGavin play it of Frankensteins fat foot. I say play it as it lies.”
One commented: “INCREDIBLE.”
Another said: “Ah, just give him the hole in one, and be done with it.”
Despite the unlucky lie, McCarthy even managed to make birdie.
McCarthy was able to take a drop with no penalty and then hit his shot to within 35 feet of the hole.
He then sinked a long-range putt to record the extraordinary birdie.
McCarthy went on to card a final round of 70 to finish 20th at the St Jude Championship.
