Web.com golfer shoots 31 over, misses cut by 47 shots
You have to see this 31-over 103 to believe it from Michael Bembenick.
You know how we say things are "unbelievable" or "unreal" and they actually aren't? Like, Jason Day just chipped in from the creek 35 yards away at the US Open and it was unbelievable! No, it really wasn't; he's a professional, this is what professionals do.
This, though? This is unbelievable.
A Web.com golfer named Michael Bembenick shot a 103 on Friday to miss the cut by 47 shots at the United Leasing Championship. The 103 came on the heels of an 89 on Thursday and included six bogeys, six double-bogeys, three triple-bogeys, a quadruple-bogey, and two pars.
It honestly looks like one of my scorecards from the local muni I play on.
Bembenick is a 27-year-old club pro from Meridian Hills Country Club in Indianapolis and said he was proud of the fact he never quit on the round. This was his first ever Web.com tournament.
"I think it's important to lead by example and show the youth that no matter how bad you play, it's important to finish. No one likes to see a quitter. I know none of the members at my club or any students that I teach would want to see me quit."
Pretty good attitude from a dude who just had one of the worst rounds in the history of professional golf.
