Rod Pampling Hit the Greatest Shot in Major Championship History

Share

Rod Pampling produced one of the most freakish tee shots ever seen in a major as he just managed to complete his second round at the PGA Championship.

Weather issues throughout the day meant the action was pushed into a later hour, and into the subsequent darkness.

If the horn blew for players to come in before Pampling tee'd off, he would have to return in the wee-hours of Saturday morning to play one hole.

Pampling was obviously rushed, but regardless he produced what will likely be the worst shot of the tournament.

Marlins sign agreement to sell to Jeter group
Jeter, who made $266 million in salaries on the field, is believed to be contributing $25 million to the purchase of the Marlins. The Marlins are not contending for a playoff spot now , but could be a playoff team next season with the right additions.

The rules dictate that, if play is suspended due to darkness and one player's ball is in play, then the entire group can choose to finish the hole, should they so choose.

"On 17 I was off the green". And DJ is like, "I'll do it".

"Have you ever seen a shot like that in a major championship?" said Nantz, fighting off laughter.

"I had to give him a hug for it". The Australian raced to the tee and took a wild swipe at the ball, slashing it left into trees in order to beat the horn. He finished on 14-over-par, the same score as playing partner Thomas Pieters, while Xander Schauffele, the other member of the group, was one shot better on 13-over. "To be able to get that extra sleep and relax a little bit in the afternoon; it goes for Henrik, and Dustin, as well".
