2014 US Open: Golfers hit wrong golf balls on 18th fairway
Hunter Mahan and Jamie Donaldson messed up in a big way at the second round of the US Open.
When one of my kids (who is two) encounters a situation that is unsettling to him he comes up to me or his mother and says "I have an issue."
Hunter Mahan and Jamie Donaldson certainly had an issue on Friday at the US Open.
They mixed up each other's golf balls on the 18th fairway and hit the wrong ball. Once they realized it when they got to their third shots they had to traipse back down the fairway, drop, and take a penalty.
Both walked away with double bogey and a reminder that golf doesn't need to be made more hard than it already is. Especially at a US Open.

And here's Mahan's caddie consoling him:
"Hunter’s ball had kicked right so I assumed it was the one in the middle of the fairway. Jaime’s ball, to me, looked definitely left. I got up to the ball, I was the first one there. Completely my fault.
"I went to the ball first, got the yardage, gave the yardage to Hunter, Jaime and Mic went over to their ball and played their ball after Hunter hit his. It was 100 percent my fault."
"Hunter was great about it. He was great all day, he had no reaction at all. He went back, and hit a good shot, ended up turning it around and birdied one."
