Billy Horschel knew it was silly he, Scott Stallings and buddy Colt Knost were still playing golf in gusty, rainy conditions on Sunday at the Farmers Insurance Open.
In fact, on the third hole, Knost was standing over a 39-foot birdie putt, just watching his ball oscillate in the 40 mph breeze. He was looking at a PGA Tour rules official just wondering if a little pleading might get him and his group off of Torrey Pines' South Course for a weather delay. No dice.
So, Knost slapped his birdie putt, which then swung some 8 feet, past the hole, then back down toward it and in for the unlikely birdie. Knost is juiced and smiling. Meanwhile, 2014 FedEx Cup winner Billy Horschel, who's already had enough and is playing in a backwards PXG hat, does a human helicopter running celebration for his buddy.
Horschel finished his round on Sunday before play was called after multiple stoppages for the weather. Knost is playing his third shot into the 18th hole, along with Stallings, so they can finally be done with this week.
