Before Richard H. Lee got to the 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass, he was having a pretty great week. Lee was playing in his second Players Championship, making the cut this year for the first time and making a great run on an early Sunday.
Lee was 2-under for the day when he got to the tee on the par-3 17th, and for the fourth day in a row his tee shot found land. That's usually a good thing at the famous island green, but that was where Lee's short game basically disappeared.
The first attempt from the fringe was a belly pitch, and when his wedge got caught up in the grass he nearly whiffed it. Then Lee grabbed his putter, and the exact same thing happened.
He walked away with a double-bogey and this video, that will definitely follow him around for a while.

Update: Even Lee had a little fun with these two shots afterwards, taking to Twitter to give us the thoughts of his 7-year-old daughter about what her dad did on the 17th hole.
