Sung Kang's bid for his first PGA Tour win undone by bad weather forecast
Kang finished T5 last week after a poor putt and an untimely rain storm
The rainstorm that lit up TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm and the Quicken Loans National on Sunday lasted no more than 10 minutes, but it was enough to waylay Sung Kang's bid for his first PGA Tour victory.
Kang was 6 under at the time with a short putt to get to 7 under (a score that would have eventually gotten him into a playoff) when the rains poured. He was stuck without an umbrella or any rain gear because there was no prediction of rain on the day. He turned his hat backward and promptly missed a six-foot putt before feigning a club throw. He was clearly not pleased.
After a stop at the par-3 17th under the umbrella of a marshal, Kang proceeded to make double bogey and fall out of contention. He parred the last but finished T5.
"It said zero percent chance of rain all day. Like no chance of thunderstorms at all," Kang told Amanda Balionis of CBS Sports after his round. He was pretty peeved about the entire situation.
The silver lining here is that Kang earned a slot in The Open Championship in two weeks because of his top five finish.
