The par-3 17th at TPC Sawgrass has been the undoing of many golfers’ PLAYERS Championship prospects.
To that list, you can now add Byeong-Hun An.
The 29-year-old was one-over for the day when he arrived on the tee of the so-called ‘Island Hole’ during the first round of this year’s tournament.
By the time he made his way to the 18th, he was NINE-over.
The South Korean dunked not one, not two, not three, but FOUR balls in the water, eventually signing for an octuple-bogey 11.
Have a look at how the debacle unfolded…
The only consolation for An is that this isn’t the worst score posted by a player on the 17th.
That dubious honour belongs to Bob Tway who had a 12 there in 2005.
Granted, it’s not much of a consolation, but still.
The winner of the 2015 BMW PGA Championship and, six years earlier, the US Amateur, An is still looking for his maiden victory on the PGA Tour.
And thanks to the notorious 17th hole, it doesn’t look as though that will change this week.
