Kevin Na and his chainsaw / PGATour
Unless you've been living under a rock, you most likely witnessed the video of Na coming unraveled and carding a 16 on the par-4 ninth hole at last year's Valero Texas Open.
After knocking his first two shots into the trees on the right side of the fairway, Na proceeded to spend the better part of a day hacking his ball around in the woods on his way to the highest single-hole score in tour history. It was a cringe-worthy moment for those watching at home, but Na seemed to take things in stride.
He was caught walking off the hole with a smile on his face, counting the strokes out loud as he strolled to the 10th tee. Despite being a part of one of the worst moments in golf, Na certainly deserves credit for making light of a particularly awful moment.
Since the 16, Na's gone on to capture his first PGA Tour victory and comes into this week's Valero Texas Open as one of the favorites, so his luck has certainly changed. But that didn't stop him from exacting some revenge on the hole that caused him so much trouble last year.
Na, who's hosting "Inside the PGA Tour" this week, was given a chance to take a chainsaw -- "Craig Stadler style" -- to some of the branches that led to the sky-high score. Even though the brush clearing won't erase Na's history on the hole, he's at least giving others a chance to avoid replicating his feat. What a nice guy.
