Video: Charl Schwartzel four-putts the 18th hole at TPC Boston from three feet
Charl Schwartzel's four-putt on the final green on Sunday at TPC Boston makes even a 20-handicapper shake his head.
We've all muttered those famous words during a professional golf telecast, "Hey, I could do that!," even if it isn't true, but on Sunday at TPC Boston, Charl Schwartzel did something that might even force the weekend hacker to give up the game.
Standing on the 18th green, with three feet for birdie, Schwartzel powered his birdie putt into the left lip and the cruelest action in the game happened with the putt horseshoed almost directly back at him.
No worries, right, just slap that one in for par and get outta there. But Schwartzel would miss that one. Then hit it left-handed and not convert there either. FInally, he tapped in for double-bogey after sitting just a couple of feet away for birdie.
That was crazy, but maybe even crazier was his finish. The former Masters champion had three double-bogeys over his last five holes, and four double-bogeys on his day as he posted an 8-over 79 and dropped him 40 spots at the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Amazingly, Schwartzel only had 33 putts on the afternoon.
