If you've ever played golf, you understand the frustration of hitting an errant shot and losing your ball. Brooks Koepka does as well.

Even a pro like Koepka, the top golfer in the world right now, will occasionally lose a ball. In fact, he just did so at the Tour Championship.

At the seventh hole of today's final round at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Koepka hit his tee shot into the woods. He couldn't come up with his ball either after searching for it.

Koepka wound up making a double-bogey on the hole, while Rory McIlroy came away with a birdie. The three-shot swing moved McIlroy into the lead for the weekend at -16.

Koepka is at -14. If he doesn't win the event, he'll be thinking about that seventh hole for a while.

Currently, McIlroy is two shots up on both Koepka and Xander Schauffele about midway through this round.

We'll see if either player can close the gap on the back nine.
