Kevin Na had the worst day ever when he shot a 16 on a par-4 during the 2011 Texas Valero Open
When you’re a professional, there is no such thing as “picking up”. No matter how bad your shots are you have to finish the hole to get your score. Na ended up in a mess of brush and trees TWICE before he punched out finally after 12 strokes. I probably would have blacked out too if I were him.
The way he talks about it now is kind of great, hoping people will get a kick out of it or feel better about themselves. It’s amazing when a professional can laugh at themselves and realize that they’re human and that it’s okay to make mistakes.
Not sure if Jordan will have this same attitude so quickly, but maybe in a year he will.
