Matt Kuchar won his match twice (kind of)

We all thought Matt Kuchar had won his first-round match against Bernd Weisberger 5 and 4 on Wednesday afternoon.

That's because he had.

But then he hadn't.

Yeah, it was bizarre. Kuchar did win his match 5 and 4 with a birdie at the 14th hole but shortly after that he called a rules infraction on himself for a misplaced ball.

He had moved his marker out of the way of Weisberger and forgot to move it back (as you can see in the video above).

So he conceded the hole to Weisberger and they played on. At least it wasn't dialed in from somebody watching at home!

It got a little hairy near the end but the two parred each of the the next two holes and Kuchar won (for the second time) 3 and 2.

The win pushes Kuchar's career record at the Match Play Championship to 16-3, including his win in 2013.

Kuchar will face Ryan Moore in the second round.
