Paul Goydos throws it all away on the PGA Tour Champions with a disastrous four-putt from three feet on the 17th.

Paul Goydos has a SHOCKER from three feet to throw away PGA Tour Champions title

Paul Goydos threw away the Ally Challenge on the PGA Tour Champions on Sunday night when taking four putts from just three feet on the 17th hole.

Goydos, 59, found himself one stroke clear of the field heading to the penultimate hole of the tournament as a result of making three birdies in a row from the 13th.

But then things went rapidly downhill for the two-time PGA Tour winner as he stood over a short putt for par on 17. 

Had he holed the putt, he would have just needed a par down the 18th to seal his sixth PGA Tour Champions title and first since 2017. 

That sadly did not happen though. 


Goydos raced the par putt some three feet past the hole.

He then missed the return for bogey. 

To the shock of the crowd, and the commentary team, Goydos tried to compose himself to make the putt for double.

Only he missed that, too. 

It all added up to a triple-bogey six.

Goydos finished in a tie for third on 12-under par alongside Harrison Frazar, Stephen Ames and Tim Petrovic. 

Vijay Singh took full advantage of Goydos' mistake as he ran out a one-shot victory on 14-under par. 

Former World No.1 Singh carded a second consecutive round of 68 to see out his fifth PGA Tour Champions title. 

Jeff Maggert finished solo second. 

Darren Clarke finished in solo seventh on 17-under par. 

Goydos won twice on the PGA Tour during his career with victories coming at the 1996 Bay Hill Invitational and 2007 Sony Open in Hawaii.

He is best remembered for becoming the oldest player in PGA Tour history to shoot a round of 59.

He was 46 at the time of that feat. 

That came in the first round of the 2010 John Deere Classic.
