Ian Poulter hits shank into the stands on TPC Scottsdale’s 16th hole

Ian Poulter is a golfer that usually likes to make noise. Well, this time around, he felt the wrath of the crowd at the 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale, known as the “Coliseum” after an awful shank on Friday.

The shank was so bad, that the ball flew into the stands as if it were a home run. Poulter is normally a decent iron player, but the stadium swallowed him up.

As you can imagine, there is probably no place more embarrassing to shank at than at the 16th at Scottsdale. With a ton of eyes looking down on you from above, it’s definitely cringe-worthy stuff at golf’s loudest hole.

For the heck of it though, one thing I would love to do is just hit some tee shots into the stands (when they’re empty), and pretend I hit a grand slam. All I would need is the radio broadcaster of my favorite baseball team (White Sox) to the play by play call of my shots.

All messing around aside, it would definitely be amazing to hit a tee shot at 16 and visualize what it looks like on Saturdays and Sundays under the hot Arizona sun. I could also get away with shanks, on a regular, non-tournament day because nobody will be watching me, so there’s that.
