Byeong Hun An cards 11 on No. 17 at Players Championship



This was a Tin Cup-like disaster for Byeong Hun An.

The 29-year-old hit an 11 on the par-3 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass Thursday during the first round of The Players Championship.

An sunk his first four shots into the water before he finally landed on the green. He then two-putted to card the 11, the second-highest score ever recorded on the hole in the ShotLink era. He finished with an 83 for the round.

He at least took it in stride.

“We all have bad days in our life and we just have to learn to move on…..” he tweeted. “But it was a horrendous f—-ing tee shot on 17th…”

In the 1996 flick “Tin Cup,” Kevin Costner’s character, Roy McAvoy, blows his shot at the US Open by hitting several shots into the water on the final hole before carding a 12.
