Kevin Na Shoots 16

Records are meant to be broken. Unfortunately for Kevin Na, he set a less than desirable record - highest score on a par 4.

In the Valero Texas Open, Na posted a whooping 16 on No. 9. But, hey, Na didn't seem too upset about it after his round.
“I feel like I’m playing somewhat decent and it was one shot — actually two but one that started the whole thing and it was one bad hole and what’s crazy about this game,” Na said. “One bad hole can basically shoot you out of the tournament. That’s what I just did. Without that I shot I believe ...”

. . .

“I think I handled myself pretty well,” said Na, who made three birdies and no bogeys the rest of his round. “My play just shows that 4 under — 3 under on the rest of the way in, whatever I did. I hit a lot of good shots and didn’t make another bogey afterwards. It just shows you how well I took it.”
Na and his caddie originally wrote down a 15 but after watching a replay, they counted 16. The crazy thing is even with a 16 on hole 9, he still only shot an 80. That means had he shot par on the ninth, he would have shot a 68.

So far this morning, he's E thru five holes, so I don't think he's going to make the cut. If you want to watch all 16 strokes, click here.

It's the first time I have seen him play quickly. On other days he makes Bernhard Langer look like Roadrunner. Hopefully it will help him to grow up and not be such an angry little man.
