$35,094 and 19 Fedex Points. What could have been.....
Isn't that normal?He got one back at 18 (#9) to finish -2 for the day, but damn. He's tied for 43rd, still in striking distance of a top 25 if he can have a good round today. That one hole just killed him.
You are probably right. Since he got a drop off the cart path though, I suppose it’s possible he hit a tree 200+ yards out, ball landed on the cart path and rolled back 150 yards or something.He would have had to have been trying to cut a corner or something to hit a tree that close. Otherwise, it would be like a a 200+ yard backwards ricochet off a tree? That would be something. I think more than likely the site is just screwed up, as usual.
Yeah has to be a shot like mess up. I could top one and end up there, but no pro would ever do that, and if he somehow did, we’d have highlights. Option 2 would be drilling the V tree. That would’ve required a backwards and left bounce to the cart path, roll back around a slight curve and of course over the bridge crossing the hazard.Here's the hole:
It's basically straight so not sure trying to cut a corner. There's definitely a cart path right there though. Weirdness.
Yeah, i wasn't sure which course he played, and how it was playing. That's a nice sign. Hope he can keep it up. Needs to make some prize money in these "smaller" events that aren't as well attended by the top players.-5 round today. T24, but he had the second best round at the Stadium Course.
