SF Gate wrote about a man holding his newborn baby startling the hospital’s nurses when he saw the shot go in:
“It just floated,” Luiz says, “and the whole time it was in the air I was saying, ‘Oh no, no way!’ When it went in, I went, ‘Oh my God! Oh my God!’ I had my son in my hands and a couple of nurses came running in asking if everything was OK.”
Or, as he texted a friend: “It was insane bro. Best worlds ever… I screamed when it went in [and] all the nurses came in thinking something was wrong.”
Golf websites wrote about it.
