You’ll never relate to a tour pro more than this nightmarish bunker meltdown at Riviera

Palmer found the front left bunker at Riviera’s par-3 14th hole during the third round, and boy, it seemed like he might never escape it. Take a look at the cringe-worthy Shotlink sequence on Palmer’s scorecard, which would lead to an eventual 9 on the one-shotter.

Thankfully for the Texan, the PGA Tour did not share video of the nightmare sequence. The evidence is in the scorecard … and goodness, that’ll scar the best of players.

Palmer stuck it out, made his 9, and plummeted down the leader board. But again, we’ll respect him for staying composed and finishing his round Saturday at Riviera. Keep the chin up, Ryan.
