Have you ever had a good round going and then struggle to get it into the clubhouse? Viktor Hovland came to his final hole on Friday only 2 shots behind the leaders, but then broke the cardinal rule of golf by following one mistake with another and another, en route to a quadruple bogey finish.
Here he is trying to escape the brush behind the green, after blading his approach from the fairway bunker.
Thru 17 holes, Viktor Hovland was -7 and two shots back of the lead.
On 18, he would quadruple bogey to finish six shots behind the leader.

Here is his shot track. A little bit of a back and forth going on there.

Here is his card. One of these things is not like the others.

To his credit, Viktor handled with his disastrous finish quite well.
