You know how sports fans always say, "That guy's terrible, I could do better than that"?
That's obviously never true because fans have no idea how difficult it is to be a world-class athlete, even when they struggle.
In light of that, I present you a performance I think I could replicate.
Here's a look at his unbelieveable scorecard:
That's a double-bogey, quadruple-bogey, quintuple-bogey, triple-bogey, double-bogey, quintuple-bogey start for those scoring at home.
Amazingly, it's not even Svodoba's worst outing the last two years.
Last year he played in three European Challenge Tour events (these are akin to Web.com Tour events in the U.S.) and here were his scores:
Credit Suisse Challenge - 91-84 (+33)
English Challenge - 83-85 (+24)
Norwegian Challenge - 88-79 (+23)
He was well on his way to a 100 today before withdrawing. According to this Sporting Life article, the European Tour record for a single round is a 111. That definitely would have been challenged on Thursday.
The article also said Svodoba withdrew because of a wrist injury.
Svodoba was in the field according to a national/regional order of merit which is Europe's old term for the money list.
Looks like it's time for the Czech Republic to find some better golfers.
