Hole: No. 16, par-4, 397 yards

Score: 19 (+15)

Ray Ainsley, a club pro from California made an absolute mess of the 16th hole at Cherry Hills Country Club during the 1938 U.S. Open. After his approach found the creek guarding the green, Ainsley decided to play it from the water, but each time he took a swing the ball moved downstream with the current. After a chip and a putt, he recorded a 19 on his way to shooting a 96. After the round Ainsley said, “I thought I had to play the ball as it lay all the time.”
