Kevin Na Shot A 16 On A Par-4 Yesterday (Video)
I suck at golf. And when I say suck, I mean suck to the fullest extent of the term. On average, during a single round of golf I can expect to lose one ball per hole. Yes, I really am that bad. However, I do not believe I have ever shot a 16 on a hole in my life.
Much of that probably has to do with the fact that by the time I get to about 12 strokes I would just quit, but that is besides the point.
The main point is that Kevin Na, a professional golfer playing on the PGA Tour, took an embarrassing 16 shots to finally finish off the ninth hole at the Texas Open yesterday afternoon. It was so bad that Na couldn’t even keep track of how many shots he had taken. Instead, officials had to go over the video replay several times before finally making a decision and allowing Na to sign off on his scorecard. He would shoot 4-under on the course’s other seventeen holes, but his 12-over on hole No. 9 would leave him at 8-over after the first round.
In case you were wondering, it wasn’t the worst single hole performance ever on the PGA Tour. In 1998, John Daly shot an 18 on the par-5 sixth hole at Bay Hill. Although, he was probably drunk at the time.
Here is a look at Na’s debacle. Anytime there is a 5 minute 50 second clip of a golfer trying to complete a single hole, you know it can’t be good.
