Sergio Garcia endured a nightmare defence of his Masters title on the opening day of the Masters.
The Spaniard got to the 15th on two-over but proceeded to rinse five balls in the water to sign for a 13, the highest score on that hole in the history of the tournament.
Noted by local writer Scott Michaux of the Augusta Chronicle, the score by the defending champion dumped fellow Spaniard Ignacio Garrido from the history books, as his 11 in 1998 joined Ben Crenshaw (1997) and Jumbo Osaki (1987) as the highest scores ever posted on No. 15.
"I don’t know what to tell you,” the Spaniard said afterwards. “It’s one of those things. It’s the first time in my career where I make a 13 without missing a shot. Simple as that. I felt like I hit a lot of good shots and unfortunately the ball just didn’t want to stop.
“I kept hitting good shots with the sand wedge and unfortunately I don’t know why, the ball just wouldn’t stop.
“I don’t know, you know, it’s one of those things. So it’s just unfortunate, but that’s what it is.
Garcia's 13 ties the record for the highest score ever on a single hole at the Masters.
His 'Tin Cup' moment ended his defence of the green jacket and left him second bottom of the leaderboard, with only English amateur Harry Ellis, who carded an 86, worse off.
To his credit, the Spaniard then birdied the par-3 16th hole.
