Embarassing Golf Moments


The other day I was thinking about how embarrassing golf can be at times, and wanted to see some embarrassing PGA moments. I found this great article after a little search…enjoy.

Golf is a game of failure. Only one player prevails every tournament. The rest, in some sense, fail. So the game’s history is chock-full of mistakes, poor shots, bad choices and embarrassing moments. Sam Snead never won a U.S. Open but he lost one when he made an 8 on the final hole.
