Golf is hard. If you need any more proof, here are 10 of the highest scores ever recorded on Tour.
Kevin Na – 2011 Texas Valero Open, TPC San Antonio
Hole: No. 9, par-4, 474 yards
Score: 16 (+12)
Kevin Na’s 16 at the 2011 Valero Texas Open was one for the ages. Plus he happened to be wearing a microphone which made it that much better. It started with a drive into the woods which he took an unplayable and went back to the tee. It didn’t get much better because that too found the same spot in the trees. His next shot hit a tree, bounced off his leg (for a penalty) and landed behind him in a spot that he also declared unplayable. Na finally got out of the woods and into the rough but it had he had taken 12 shots, including a left-handed whiff. At long last he one-putted for his 16, or a “duodecuple” bogey.
“I think I made somewhere between a 10 and 15, but I think it’s closer to a 15,” Na said, before making an official count. He hilariously returned to the scene of the crime the following year with a chainsaw to clear out some of the woods – and memories.
