It was a day to forget for Matthew Wolff on Thursday, after he shot a painful 11-over par opening round at the WGC-Workday Championship, before withdrawing from the tournament, but his mistake at the par-3 16th will be something he never wants to see again.
The Concession was proving a tough task for many of the world's best, with World No.1 Dustin Johnson shooting 5-over par and Bryson DeChambeau matching that score.
Wolff's scorecard on Thursday was quite the mess, with a mixture of pars, birdies, bogeys, double-bogeys, triple-bogeys and yes, even a quadruple-bogey which came at the par-4 15th (his 6th hole).
The worst part is, the quadruple bogey wasn't even the most embarrassing moment of the 22-year-old's disappointing round. At the par-3 6th hole - Wolff's 15th - the American was lining up a rare birdie chance from 15 feet. Wolff took a few practice putts next to his ball, but on his third pass his putter clipped the ball and it rolled away at a 90-degree angle.

I'm sure at that point Wolff wished the ground would just swallow him up, but there was a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel, as due to a rule change in 2019, Wolff was able to replace his ball and take the putt without a penalty, as he hit his ball by accident.
Unfortunately, that little bit of light quickly disappeared when he then three-putted from his original spot and added another bogey to his scorecard.
Due to this week's tournament being a WGC event, there is no cut line and as Wolff withdrew after officially starting the tournament, he still finishes last and will take home $32,000. Not bad, right?
