British Open 17th tee hotel

Prior to his tee shot on the 17th hole during the third round of the British Open Championship at St. Andrews on Sunday, England’s Eddie Pepperell held a share of the lead with Dustin Johnson at 10-under-par.

Then he did this:

With birdies on the final two holes, Pepperell would have been the first golfer ever to record a round of 62 at a major championship. Instead, he went double bogey-par on the 17th and 18th for a round of 66, leaving him at 8-under-par, four strokes off the lead heading into Monday’s final round.
