Austin Cook is fighting for his PGA Tour card this week at the Wyndham Championship. Should he fall short of keeping his status by one shot, well, the following may keep him up many at night.
At Sedgefield Country Club’s par-3 16th hole in the first round, Cook suffered one of the worst hole-in-one horseshoes you’ll ever see:
That video should come with a NSFW warning.
Cook did make birdie, but he needs every bit of help he can get. Entering the week 134th in the FedEx Cup standings, the 30-year-old needs to finish 11th or better at the Wyndham to make the playoffs. Moreover, Cook has no exempt status next season, meaning he needs that high standing to avoid a trip to the Korn Ferry Tour postseason.
There’s no cheering in the press box, but whatever Cook’s fate may be, we hope it’s not decided by a shot.
