Richard H. Lee brutal double bogey on island green at Players (GIF)


Normally when you hear about a brutal double bogey at the infamous “island green” 17th hole at Sawgrass you think of some poor sucker putting it in the water a couple of times.

But Richard H. Lee showed Sunday that there’s more than one way to put up a five on that particular nerve-shattering par 3.

The GIFs of Lee struggling from just off the green speak for themselves.

His first swing moves him forward about three inches. His next putt attempt, clear from the thick fringe at least, doesn’t go much better.

What the heck happened there anyway? Was Lee intimidated by having to stand next to the water? Was he afraid a shark or a gator was going to leap from the lake and take a chunk out of his buttock?

Something caused Lee to lose his concentration there. After the first shot, he just totally melted down mentally. That’s the only explanation for the second shot.

That or demonic possession. Seriously. That’s about as brutal as you will ever see from a professional.
