Ryan Palmer

How does a four-time PGA Tour winner take six shots to get out of a bunker?

Ryan Palmer was 100 per cent for sand saves on Friday. The following day couldn't have been more different for the American
 

When Ryan Palmer overshot the par-3 14th green at Riviera on Saturday he will have been eyeing up a sand save. He arrived on the 15th tee with a nine.

What happened was this which Palmer described as follows: “Fatted it up there. It stayed (near the lip). Somehow. Came down. Fatted it. Stayed, somehow. Tried to hit it each time. Came down in a footprint, chopped it out and two-putted.”

The ‘poor guy’ actually needed six shots to escape the sand.

Two putts from 11 feet followed and a sextuple-bogey made its way onto the card.

In the locker room after his 10-over 81 which also included an eagle and two birdies, Palmer said: “I hit it nine times. Anything else? Is it a record or something?”

On the Sunday needless to say Palmer made a birdie two.
