It was very painful to watch the 8 Padraig made on the 8th hole yesterday. I know that there are those among us that have had similar holes in tournaments.
I personally managed to make a 10 on a 460 yard par 4 in a tournament a few years ago. Went from 3 under to 3 over faster than you can believe.
It was painful, but he is a cool guy and took it in stride. I loved the post round interview, so optimistic.
I have managed back to back triple bogeys before during a tournament. That will really put a damper on the round but I was able to scrap back and ended up T4 in the tournament. Granted the next day I shot 4 under, but the 4 over round the day before didn't help. One ball OB and I was fuming and couldn't get a hold of my emotions so it went on to the next hole. Thank goodness it was 17 and 18 I blew up on, I don't know how the other holes would have ended up if it was earlier in the round!!
Taught me a valuable lesson though.
