19th Hole

Sergio Garcia made a 13 at Augusta National’s 15th hole

Published

on

Sitting at 2-over par, reigning Masters champion, Sergio Garcia wasn’t having a brilliant round when he arrived at the 15th hole.

However, shades of “Tin Cup,” it got a helluva lot worse in the course of his playing of Firethorn. Garcia piped his drive 320 yards down the fairway at the par-5. Good, great. Fire a 200-yard approach in and you’re putting for eagle, right? Not so much.

The Spaniard found the water with his second shot. He dropped. Then rinsed his next shot. And his next shot. And his next shot. And his next. Finally, Garcia found the green with his 12th shot. Mercifully, he holed the ensuing 10-footer for an octuple-bogey 13.

Here’s what the horrorshow looked like on Masters.com’s shot tracker.

    “Hey Sergio, how did you make 13 on #15?
    (his reply) “I hit it lands. I hit it sinks. I hit it sinks. I hit it sinks. I hit it sinks. I hit it sinks. I hit it lands. I hit it sinks.”

    Sergio’s wedge shots were perfectly executed .But probably he put too much spin on the ball with groves of the wedge much to new .He would had been better off if they had be a bit worn off Nothing to laugh of .We all have our bad times also.This green no 15 is a nightmare !

    Felt pain for him. A great champion but very humbled. No excuses please.

    Did anyone notice how he blamed the golf course? “That’s the first time I made a 13 without hitting a bad shot”. You hit 3 (Tres) bad shots, idiot. You’d think a Masters Champion would figure out to hit it above the pin there if he couldn’t hit a dead hand shot and take off spin. What a baby; he still hasn’t grown up. I wonder if he spit in the cup too?

    I made a 13 on a hole once. When I was 7.

    I’ve always wanted to play golf like the pros do. And….now I do!

    Wonder why after spinning two back into the water he didn’t hit a different shot with less spin on it maybe past the pin. Just goes to show that even pros get brain freeze.

    “It was the greatest 13 of all time. No one’s going to remember the Masters 10 years from now, who won…but they’ll remember your 13! My, God, Sergio, it was…Well, it’s immortal! I am so proud of you!”

If you’re on Instagram, you’re hopefully aware that we are ‘gramming it up as well (@golfwrx). And if you’re not following us, well, that hurts our feelings more than a three-putt bogey.

Even if you do follow WRX on Instagram, however, you may not be aware that an abundance of equipment enthusiasts are hashtagging their photos #GolfWRX. We feel it’s only right to feature the best of the WRX-tagged imagery here.

And if you’re not on Instagram, well there’s no way you could see these photos, so think of this series as a handy filter for the best #GolfWRX photos from the past 24 hours.

Report: No tickets will be sold for Tiger-Phil match

Published

on

Sorry, fans, you’re not going to be able to buy tickets to the Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson $9 million megamatch at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, November 23.

Per a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, only a “small gathering of sponsors and VIPs” will be allowed on course. The report also indicates that, in contrast to Phil Mickelson’s promised primetime (ET) showdown, the match will be played under the Nevada sun. The official start time is yet to be announced, ditto the PPV price.

We corrected the promo graphic below to eliminate the crowd. But right-handed Tiger Woods swinging a left-handed club still needs fixing.

Woods is the -220 favorite at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. Mickelson is a +180 underdog.

WATCH: Is this the craziest hole-in-one you’ve ever seen?

Published

on

Golfers often say that getting a hole-in-one is all luck. (Keep in mind that Tiger Woods, arguably one of the most skilled iron players ever, says he has 19 holes-in-one… so maybe not all luck.) But certainly there are some holes-in-one that are “luckier” than others.

And then there’s this shot by Eddie Pepperell at the 2018 British Masters…

Definitely a great shot, and he absolutely took dead aim, but how this golf ball found the bottom of the cup is mind-blowing. It seemed to bounce off the ground, go up the flagstick, hit the ground, then side hop itself right into the basket. Wow.

But is it crazier than the bank shot?

That one is hard to top.

Or how about the all-time classic Bugs-Bunny-assisted hole-in-one by Michael Jordan in Space Jam?

Looney Tunes aside, here’s what Pepperell had to say about his hole-in-one.

He may not have seen what happened at the time, but he’ll see it on highlight reels for years to come.
