Jason Millard disqualifies himself after maybe grounding club in sand
The US Open will have to wait for this kid who played college golf at Middle Tennessee State.
Jason Millard is not a name you should know but his story is one you should read.
Jason Sobel of Golf Channel profiled his tale in this piece and told of how Millard qualified for the US Open in a sectional qualifier on Monday in Memphis, Tenn.
On the final hole Millard may have grounded his club in a bunker (he says he's not sure) and it ate at him all week until he disqualified himself from the Open on Saturday.
Extreme? Maybe, but a golfer's conscience is sometimes all a golfer has.
"I literally thought about it for every single second of the day," Millard told Golf Channel. "I just kept asking myself what to do. I kept saying, 'I'm not 100 percent sure,' so I never did anything. But it kept on eating at me inside."
He was driving to Pinehurst when he made the call.
"It's heartbreaking but what I was feeling in my heart didn't feel right," said Millard. "It's the right decision and I am sticking with it."
