Golfer Kevin Na Needed 16 Shots On A Par-4 Hole


Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne with news of a subpar performance on the PGA Tour. Golfer Kevin Na set a record at the Texas Open yesterday. On the ninth hole, he shot a 16 - the tour's highest-ever score on a par-four. This being golf, a high score is bad. Na whiffed on one shot. Another one ricocheted off a tree and hit him in the leg. He took nearly 20 minutes to finish the hole, a truly memorable performance, though Kevin Na says it was all a blur.
