Less than 24 hours after Danny Lee had a six-putt from inside four feet on the 18th hole at Winged Foot, Rory Sabbatini has had a nightmare all of his own on the greens at Winged Foot.

Playing the par-4 15th in his final round of this year’s US Open, the South Africa-born Slovakian found himself facing a tricky putt for birdie. 

What happened next almost defies explanation.

With his back to the pin, the 44-year-old took aim at a spot on the green which he must have felt would borrow back down towards the hole. 

It didn’t quite work out like that.

Watch the footage…


Sabbatini subsequently signed for a double on his way to a miserable 11-over-par 81 and a 24-over total. 

All the more incredible when you consider he was one-under after the first day.

• Where will the 2021 US Open be played?

At the other end of the leaderboard, Matthew Wolff currently leads hold a two-shot lead over Bryson DeChambeau going into today’s final round, with former Open champion Louis Oosthuizen a further shot adrift.
