Lucas Bjerregaard throws driver in ocean, cards 11 on 18th hole


Lucas Bjerregaard threw his driver into the ocean after hitting his THIRD DRIVE out of play on the par-5 18th on day one of the US Open at Pebble Beach.

How to hit the perfect drive


Bjerregaard sent his first two drives into the ripples and then launched his third drive way right out of bounds, before sending his driver in the other direction.

The Dane went on to card a disastrous 11 to go out in 45 shots having started on the back nine, and then returned in 35 for a 9-over 80. 

"It's tough," said Bjerregaard. "It kind of ruins it all for me. It's a course where you have to limit your mistakes. You can't afford to be making 11s."

Luckily for Bjerregaard, it's by no means the worst score posted on one hole in US Open history - that belongs to Ray Ainsley, who carded a 19 on the par-4 16th at Cherry Hills in 1938.

Perhaps Bjerregaard needs to work a little more harder with his coat hanger.
