At the PGA Championship, Rod Pampling may have hit the worst tee shot in major history. However, he did it on purpose simply to beat the horn as it rained at Quail Hollow to delay the tournament.
Knowing he wasn’t going to hang around for the weekend, Pampling hilariously rushed his tee shot, as he knew it would be his last taste of major championship golf until next year. Considering how fast he went, I’m impressed he was able to get the ball airborne.
He may not have made the cut, but Pampling gave us the funniest moment of the tournament. When it comes to silly, the majors always deliver.

Geez, who said golf isn’t dangerous? Well, it’s not.
But there are moments where a golf ball flying towards your head can be one of the scariest moments of your life. Brooks Koepka is one of the most powerful players in golf, and it showed, as he bloodied a marshal with an errant tee shot at the PGA Championship.
To everyone’s relief, the man was OK and was in good spirits overall. Koepka, being the good dude that he is, signed a glove for the man.
He even exchanged contact information with as well. Koepka wanted to check up on him later after the round was over.
So, a dangerous moment in golf ended happily. Let’s hope the only dangerous thing that occurs this weekend is golf balls falling into the watery grave of Quail Hollow’s “Green Mile”. Well, obviously, that would suck for the players, but it could be worse, I mean, I could be out there teeing it up.
If that were the case, I’d be the first person ever to dye the Green Mile’s water white with golf balls. It’s an award I wouldn’t take lightly you know.
