You may assume the outlet in a single is the rarest golf shot potential, however you’ll be incorrect. Brooks Koepka invented a brand new commonplace by which all golf accomplishments should be held to going ahead when he drilled a tee shot instantly into a cameraman’s shoe.
Yes, this actually occurred. Koepka unintentionally pulled off the feat on the sixteenth gap on the Farmers Insurance Open. When he realized what occurred, Koepka made the cameraman get the ball out of the shoe, saying “I ain’t sticking my hand in there.”
Contrary to “Happy Gilmore” lore, Koepka didn’t need to play the ball as it lies. He was allowed a penalty free drop. Koepka may be heard discussing the rule within the video. After he estimates the place the ball landed, somebody tells Koepka he can transfer it a “club length” and take his subsequent shot from there. Koepka measures out his subsequent shot, and confirms that his drop is inside the guidelines.
Despite these difficulties, Koepka was in a position to make par on the outlet.
Brooks Koepka struggling at Farmers Insurance Open
Though Koepka was in a position to get well on that gap, he’s struggled on the occasion. Through two days, Koepka sits at +4 on the Farmers Insurance Open. Six golfers are at present tied for the lead on the occasion with a -8.
Koepka has two extra rounds to attempt to make up that hole. The Farmers Insurance Open will conclude Jan. 31. Here’s hoping he can get by means of the occasion with out experiencing any additional “Happy Gilmore” moments.
