Jason Kokrak’s second shot to the 18th hole at Quail Hollow in Friday’s second round of the Wells Fargo Championship went long. Way long. As in, so long it landed on the second floor of the hospitality tent behind the green.
At that point, at 3 over for the tournament and likely to get a lousy drop if he took relief, the long-hitting Kokrak decided, the hell with it, he was going to hit the ball where it landed. So, he trudged up to the second floor of the tent and assessed the lie. To get from the tent onto the green, he’d have to thread his ball through the second floor viewing window for spectators about 20 feet in front of him, then get around a back bunker.
Kokrak managed to get on the green, leaving himself 20 feet for par. Unfortunately, he didn’t complete the up-and-down and missed the cut at 4 over par for two rounds. However, Kokrak went out giving the fans at the 18th a huge thrill.
