PHOTO: Puerto Rico Open botches ’14 champion Hadley’s name

You'd think a golf tournament would remember how to spell the names of its champions, but, as so many events have demonstrated over the years, that's not the case.

This week, the Puerto Rico Open became the latest to botch a champion's name, as it has misspelled 2014 winner Chesson Hadley's name on a plaque. Jason Gore pointed it out on Twitter.

It's not Headly.

And we think you'll appreciate this dialogue from "Blazing Saddles."

Governor William J. Le Petomane: Thank you, Hedy, thank you
Hedley Lamarr: It's not Hedy, it's Hedley. Hedley Lamarr.
Governor William J. Le Petomane: What the hell are you worried about? This is 1874. You'll be able to sue her.

(The joke was that Hedy Lamarr was an Austrian actress. Obscure, you bet.)
