Rumford claims shot of the month

Brett Rumford has won the European Tour’s shot of the month for February with his creative bunker-flop at the Perth International.

Rumford was tied for the lead heading into Saturday’s third round in Perth but found himself well off the pace as he arrived at the 14th hole four-over-par for the day.

After finding the greenside bunker at the short par-four, Rumford faced an awkward shot with very little green to play with.

Using a little local knowledge, the 38 year old holed out for eagle as he manufactured something from nothing by launching the ball into the air from the sand. The ball rolled down a slope and into the hole.

He eventually finished the tournament inside the top-seven.

January’s winner was none other than Rickie Fowler, also with a wonderfully executed bunker-shot.
