Australian Golfer Has One Of The Most Disastrous Final Holes Of A Tournament Imaginable

Australian Golfer Has One Of The Most Disastrous Final Holes Of A Tournament Imaginable
By PJ Browne Updated

All Tim Hart required was a par on the final hole of the Queensland PGA and he would have shot an incredible 58 - it would also have won him the tournament.

Instead - disastrously - the Australian triple bogeyed the 18th at Toowoomba, ended up in a playoff against New Zealander David Klein and lost on the first hole.

Hart notched up eight birdies and two eagles before that calamitous final hole.

Here's how his final round looked.

A major factor in Hart's loss was inexperience on his part. Going into the final hole the 26-year-old was completely unaware of being several shots clear.

If he had known how the leaderboard looked, he says that he would have hit a two iron from the tee rather than a driver.

It was a rollercoaster ... after hitting the driver so well I put the worst swing of the week on it right there.

Mate, it’s easy to be disappointed but if someone had said I’d be in a play-off for the title when starting the day 20th I would have grabbed it.

Even on the 18th tee, I wasn’t trying to think too much about breaking 60.

I just wanted to stay aggressive because I hadn’t seen a leaderboard and wanted to keep pushing.

If I’d known I was three or four shots in front maybe the two iron comes out.
