Pampling hits bad, rushed tee shot at US PGA

PGA Championship Golf

Rod Pampling produced one of the most freakish tee shots ever seen in a major as he just managed to complete his second round at the PGA Championship.

Weather issues throughout the day meant the action was pushed into a later hour, and into the subsequent darkness.

For pro golfers, there's not much worse than having to wake up in the wee hours to play just one or two holes-especially if you are bound for a late tee time later that day or, worse, a near guarantee to miss the cut.

Meanwhile, Jason Day rewarded playing-partner Dustin Johnson with a hug after the world No 1 ensured his group would finish their rounds with seconds to spare. Since he teed off, even if the horn blew to stop play, his group could elect to finish the hole since one ball was in play.

Well, we can all chuckle, but at 12 over entering the hole, Pampling didn't care ... because he got to finish the round.

"I was hugging him. And we were walking up, and we were talking about like if we can get a tee shot on 18, we could finish the round", Day explained.

Day added: "As soon as he teed off, we all kind of flushed it down 18".

"And DJ [Johnson] is like, 'I'll do it.' And I'm like, 'That's great'". "That's the biggest, or most clutch thing I've ever seen anyone do for me". He finished on 14-over-par, the same score as playing partner Thomas Pieters, while Xander Schauffele, the other member of the group, was one shot better on 13-over.

Now, he gets to sleep in.
