15th hole a nightmare for defending Masters champ Sergio Garcia
On the way to winning his first Green Jacket at The Masters in 2017, Sergio Garcia shot 4-under on the par-5 15th hole for the tournament.
In his four rounds, Garcia birdied the hole twice, managed par once and shot an eagle in his final round Sunday that tied him with Justin Rose on the way to a historic win.
Let’s just say things didn’t go as well in Thursday’s first round for Garcia at Augusta National.
The Spaniard put five balls into the water and shot an almost unbelievable 13 on the hole, eight over par. He finished the round at 9-over 81, putting his chances at defending his title at about 0.0 percent.

The big, fat 13 ties a Masters record for highest score on any single hole.
