What a difference

Brendon de Jonge shot a tournament-worst 80 on Thursday and sat in last place after Peter Hanson, who also shot 80, withdrew. So what did de Jonge do on Friday?

De Jonge missed it but still tied the course record (held by Rory McIlroy) of 62. Here's a look at his scorecard from Thursday:

Golf is funny.
