As a new golfers I can certainly sympathize with having a bad round of golf, yesterday Kevin Na took a bad round to a whole new level. Setting a PGA Tour record for the worst par-4 hole in Tour history with his score of 16. Na started 9th hole at the Velaro Texas Open with an unplayable lie off the tee and then a 2-stroke penalty when his ball ricocheted off another tree. Unfortunately 11 strokes later he was in the history books for all the wrong reasons. To top it all off he was wearing a mic on the course and managed to not swear during while the fiasco ensued. Thank you Kevin Na for showing us we don’t have to break a club over your knee after a train-wreck of a score.
While Na was in the trenches McIlroy was pulling himself out. After falling out of the leaderboard on the back 9 at the Masters, Rory is seeing stars again heading into the second round at the Malaysia Open as he shares the lead with Alexander Noren of Sweden.
