Strong start, then tremendous misfortune: David Duval cards a 13 after playing the wrong ball

Published

on

David Duval suffered a nightmare first round at Royal Portrush on Thursday, and during his opening nine, the 2001 Claret Jug winner recorded the what was nearly score on a single hole at The Open for 69 years.

The 47-year-old came to the par-5 seventh hole having played his previous two holes five-over-par, but that was nothing compared to what Duval was about to experience.

Duval played the wrong ball on the seventh hole, and his entire play on the hole even managed to confuse the official scoreboard. The former Open Champion was initially credited with a triple-bogey eight on the par-5, which was then adjusted to a whopping 15, before being changed to a 13.

As you would expect, Twitter had plenty to say on the octuple bogey.

*Update*

Thursday afternoon, the R&A announced on The Open’s website that Duval’s score had again been adjusted from a 13 to a 14, stating

“The adjustment was made following an error in reviewing his score on the 7th hole. David lost his first two balls from the tee and then played a wrong ball for the third ball played from the tee. On discovering the mistake at the green he had to return to where the wrong ball was played but the correct ball could not be found. Therefore he had to play again from the tee for a fourth time under penalty of stroke and distance. He played six shots in completing the hole with the fourth ball from the tee. He incurred a two-shot penalty for playing the wrong ball but the strokes played with the wrong ball do not count in his score (Rule 6.3c).”

The correction results in Duval’s opening round becoming 91, 20-over-par.

Justin Harding suffers embarrassing fall in a bunker during the opening round of The Open

Published

on

They say that one of the keys to playing links golf is avoiding the plethora of bunkers which are invariably in play, and that was certainly the case for Justin Harding during Thursday’s opening round at The Open.

The 33-year-old’s tee shot on the par-4 fifth hole found a fairway bunker, and while trying to escape from the sand from an awkward lie, Harding lost his footing, which resulted in his ball staying in the sand while he took an embarrassing tumble and in a hapless fashion did his best to avoid his body making contact with the ball.

Check out the amusing moment in the embedded video below.

To Harding’s credit, the South African laughed off the moment and went on to record a bogey on the hole.
