Golf's greatest test has been, well, tough. Balls are being hit all over a very soggy course, delivering bruises to some and brilliant souvenirs to others.
CBS Sports reports on a hilarious moment from an already eventful day.
This sequence, y'all. https://t.co/9zZtBZ79D1— Kyle Porter (@KylePorterCBS) June 13, 2013
As the report states, this was the second shot on six, a hole Westwood would eventually par. He is one under par entering play on Friday.
While brief, the Vine post shows a lucky fan making one hell of a grab while Westwood gives a perfect reaction to an errant shot.
That was hardly the only issue on the day.
Just got nailed in neck by errant Sergio drive on #4. We're both hurting. #usopen— Max Adler (@MaxAdlerGD) June 13, 2013
If walking the famed greens of Merion is in your weekend plans, you better bring a helmet.
And speaking of Sergio Garcia, he seemed to battle every last inch of the golf course all day, placing a quadruple bogey on 15 on his way to a three-over 73.
Every last fan can attest that golf is a true measure of an athlete's patience. With weather stopping play and soggy roughs causing havoc, this iteration of the U.S. Open may be among the most grueling.
Merion is offering the best and worst of golf, and every moment has been truly captivating. Still, you might want to try to duck if you are anywhere near the course over the next few days.
