Golfer plays round with signed golf bag
Nate Smith has played the entire week at Quail Hollow with a signed golf bag.
How does one go out and shoot a 5-under 67 in the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship to share the lead early on at Quail Hollow?
Well this is one way.
Nate Smith played in the Monday qualifier and Thursday first round with more than 60 autographs from other PGA Tour golfers on his bag.
"Hahn got him back, though, finding Smith's new golf bag for the week and posting a message that asked players to sign it for charity. They do that all the time, just not on the bag a player is actually using."
Here's what Smith said about the incident:
"A little embarrassing when you're playing as a Monday qualifier. You don't want people to be making fun of you. But I kind of had it coming from James, so it's all in good fun. I'll be getting him back. So don't you worry about that."
You don't worry about much other than your game when the most money you've ever won on tour is $34,000 at the 2011 Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
