Kevin Kisner couldn't pass up a chance to spend a Saturday night between the hedges.
After shooting a 6-under 64 in the third round of the Tour Championship, he hopped on a helicopter for a quick 70-mile flight to Sanford Stadium so he could cheer on the Georgia Bulldogs.

Kisner is a Georgia graduate who starred on the school's 2005 national championship golf team.
He received a huge cheer from the crowd of more than 92,000 when he was introduced on the field during the third quarter. Kisner played right along, waving his arms to fire up the red-clad fans even more.
Kisner will head back to Atlanta after the game and get ready for the final round at East Lake. He trails leader Paul Casey by just two shots.
