Sometimes it all goes wrong.
It happens to us amateur hacks but PGA Tour players?
How about a 54-hole tournament co-leader?
Poor Scott Brown started bleeding on Saturday at Torrey Pines when the winds howled and the rain came down like fine needles. His front nine 41 took him out of contention, quickly, then another bogey at the 10th was the brutal end to a bad day.
When play was suspended, it was just what Brown needed, right?
Monday’s winds were punitive. They took Jimmy Walker out of the running quickly, leaving only K.J. Choi to grind his way in and challenge eventual winner Brandt Snedeker.
Meanwhile, Brown suffered complete humiliation.
Starting the day at the 11th hole, here’s how it went for Brown:
bogey, bogey, double-bogey, bogey, bogey, double-bogey.
He came to the par-five 18th and Torrey Pines was pitching a shut-out.
Dead-into-the-wind, Brown pulled it out — the par!!
After his 41 on the front, it was 46 coming home.
Sadly, one of the worst performances by a 54-hole leader in PGA Tour history.
The good news was there were no spectators on the grounds to witness the disaster.
Might take a while for Scott to get over this one.
