DLF Golf & Country Club certainly isn’t short on quirks. There’s bunkering that would make Salvador Dali blush, 12-foot tall flagsticks and even multiple holes with multiple greens. But those eccentricities aren’t what gave players fits at Hero Indian Open on Thursday. Instead it was the plain old par-5 8th hole, which played as one of the single most brutal holes in DP World Tour history throughout the opening round. Read it and weep.

Fourteen double-bogeys or worse on the eighth hole alone. That is a massacre rarely seen in the world of professional golf. Sebastian Soderberg came to eighth riding high on six straight birdies and proceeded to hit two in the drink en route to a triple-bogey 8.

Rasmus Hojgaard, meanwhile, put on a short-game anti-clinic – including the rarely seen cartpath drop – before tapping in for his quadruple-bogey 9.

We’ll see if a change in the winds (or a traumatised field) change the data today, but if you’re a fan of chaos, carnage and car crashes, you may want to tune in to watch.
