Sam Ryder completely survived every golfer’s Phoenix Open fantasy, hitting a hole in the match with a score of 16.
Waste management Phoenix Open has become famous for its “party hole”. Stadium seating lines the 124-yard par-3 and pretty much anything between the rowdy patrons.
When Ryder’s ball landed in the cup in the third inning, it had completely turned into a ball.
There was no clapping in golf as beer poured from the stands, the patrons celebrating as if they had made a trump card themselves.
Check out the scenes below.
As we said, the pandemonium is complete.
That got Ryder an even score of 71 for the round. He finished the day in 6th place, eight shots behind the leader.
Sahith Theegala is currently leading with a score of -14. The 24-year-old is ranked 318th in the world and has no professional wins on his record, but he got himself a great shot to win a major tournament.
Brooks Koepka was the next best, one shot back, while a chasing group of Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schaufelle, Talor Gooch and Scottie Scheffler sat at -12.
