Kim Si-woo wrote himself into the PGA Tour history books for all the wrong reasons in Sunday’s final round at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational after scoring 13 on the par three 11th at TPC Southwind. The South Korean’s 10-over-par score on the 11th is the highest par three score on the PGA Tour (excluding majors) since 1983.
As a result the world number 54 approached the third par-three of his final round in Memphis level-par for the day after shooting two birdies and two bogeys on the front nine on day four of the World Golf Championship.
However, what was to follow was catastrophic for the Korean as he hit five consecutive shots into the water hazard – one from the tee and four from the drop zone – before finally finding dry land with his eleventh shot of the hole.
The three-time PGA Tour winner then found the back rough on the island green, before chipping his 12th shot within three feet of the hole allowing him to roll in a simple putt for a nightmare, 10-over 13.
The 26-year-old was quickly able to put his catastrophic par three behind him, as he reacted in perfect style with a birdie on the very next hole at the par four 12th.
