Video of the round, obtained by Golf Channel’s Brentley Romine, showed how difficult the hole was to play. Some near-perfect putts came to a slow stop before rolling back to the feet of the competitors.
«They should have known better than to put [the hole] there,» a coach told the outlet. “They just said they were sorry and they felt bad.”
