Erik van Rooyen was on his way to easily making the cut at the PGA Championship. With just five holes left in his second round, van Rooyen sat at +2, three strokes inside the cut line.
But then came the dreaded final five holes that some have labeled the toughest finishing stretch in golf.
Van Rooyen followed a bogey at 14 with a double at 15. Another bogey at 16 put him at +6, one shot out of the cut line. Then he put his tee shot on the par-3 17th into the water and, well, he wasn't very happy.
If you're keeping score, that's a tee marker, a club head and a second-round shattered in an instant.
Van Rooyen would go on to triple the 17th, pushing him all the way up to +9 and out of the tournament before the weekend.
