19th Hole

WATCH: Joe Durant misses short tap-in, loses by 1

Published

on

Joe Durant stood over — really, alongside — a short putt for par at the 17th hole at the Shaw Charity Classic yesterday. And, well, just watch.

Of course, you already know he finished one stroke out the tournament-deciding playoff, because, well, that’s just how the golf gods roll.

Now, obviously this is a terrible occurrence for Mr. Durant. And it’s even more terrible because he’s playing a yellow golf ball, isn’t it? Somehow, that just makes it worse, adding an unwanted element of comic silliness. But the best part of this video is Durant, who so casually attempted to brush in his putt, not knowing what level of care to give the remaining tap-in.

You can almost see him thinking, “Well, I was just sweepin’ that baby in, and this one’s even shorter, so, I ought to do the same. OK, I’m going to do that. Wait, the golf gods clearly didn’t appreciate my cavalier approach to the first putt. I better treat this one with more gravity. Should I get the ball marker. Yep. I’m going to get it. I’m marking, and I’m going to make sure I really tamp that thing down. OK. I’m going to go for a little walk here.” Jimenez in the background like, “Have an Amarone and forget about it, my friend.”

Rough stuff. Durant will want to make pilgrimage to the temple of the golf gods to make offerings and pay his respects in haste.
