Webb Simpson cold-shanks his tee shot on Medinah’s par-3 8th

Webb Simpson's had a memorable Ryder Cup, going 2-1 over the first two days. But during his singles match on Sunday, he had a moment he'll likely want to erase from the memory bank at the end of the day.

Holding a 1-up lead on the par-3 8th, Simpson cold-shanked his tee shot and watched as it went dead right into the woods. Normally a shank from a pro would be big news, but here's the thing: Simpson seems to hit at least one shank every month.

Case in point: the BMW Championship earlier in the month at Crooked Stick, where Simpson almost hit the exact same shot. He went on to lose the hole to Ian Poulter and is currently in a tightly-contest battle that could go either way.
