Polish pro shoots 109 for second-worst round of the year in golf

Back in June, Indiana PGA professional Michael Bembenick drew ridicule, kudos and sympathy alike for shooting 103 in the second round of a Web.com Tour event.

On Thursday, a Polish pro did six shots worse than Bembenick did.

Pawel Japol was playing on the European Challenge Tour -- the Euro equivalent of the Web.com Tour -- this week in the Kharkov Superior Cup at the Superior Golf Club and Resort at Kharkov in the Ukraine. The 41-year-old carded an unreal 109 on Thursday in a round that included five bogeys, two double bogeys, three triple bogeys, a quintuple bogey on the 14th, hextuple (or sextuple, if you want) bogey on the sixth and an octuple (which should forever be considered an "octo") on the 13th.

Unlike Bembenick, who finished his two rounds on the Web.com Tour at 48-over 192, Japol withdrew.

Still, the 109 isn't the worst round of the year. The champion is still the 115 shot on PGA Tour Latinoamerica earlier this season.
