Anything to save a stroke, right? With the PGA Tour traipsing around the wetlands of Florida, here are seven Tour pros stripping down to their skivvies and playing it as it lies.
Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, 2017
— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) January 21, 2017
Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano was working hard to try and make the 54-hole cut at the 2017 CareerBuilder Challenge when he hit his approach into the par-4 9th hole at PGA West Nicklaus Tournament Course into the water guarding the left side of the hole.
With the ball in the hazard, he had a few options under the rules, but he chose to play it as it lies. Always a sharp-dressed man, Fernandez-Castano decided to save his pants a water logging and stripped down to his underwear to wade into thigh-high water to play the shot. He escaped pretty well, but was unable to convert the unlikely up-and-down. Unfortunately for GFC, he struggled on his way into the house and missed the cut anyway. At least his pants were clean!
