During Thursday’s first round at the Masters, Jordan Spieth had a meltdown when he mishit four straight shots and carded a nine on the 15th hole.
The quadruple-bogey was bad enough. But it was made worse by coming on a Par 5, a hole where players are supposed to pick up strokes, not lose them.
In the last seven Masters Tournaments, the winners have shot a combined 54-under on Par 5s and just 26-under on all the other holes combined. In other words, shooting 4-over on one Par 5 is even worse than it sounds and that’s hard to do.
