Kevin Na shot a 16 on the par 4 9th hole at the Valero Texas Open today. Yes, you read that part right, he shot a 16. I just saw this on Sportscenter and am trying to find the ESPN highlights online. If one of you finds it please send me the link. In the meantime watch the clip from the PGA Tour.
Here is the play by play from the PGA Tour.
|1-2||Tee shot right. Went down and found ball and declared an unplayable lie.|
|3||Went back to the tee box and hit another tee shot which went right in to the woods. Then hit a provisional left (Abandoned provisional). Found second tee shot on the right and played it.|
|4-5||Played ball in the woods and hit a tree and the ball hit himself and took a one shot penalty.|
|6||Took unplayable where ball came to rest.|
|7||Hit ball in woods.|
|8||Hit ball in woods (Left-handed and missed ball).|

One of the craziest sights I have ever seen in pro sports. Na, finished 39th on the PGA Tour money list last year and 19th in 2009. Have to be impressed with him going out and having a pretty decent back 9. He gave an interview to PGATour.com after his round.
