The last hour of the U.S. Open's final round has been nothing short of a disaster. There's been a broken club, volunteers getting plunked in the head, and a shank that went farther right than forward.
Luke Donald, who was responsible for knocking the young female volunteer in the noggin, also went on an adventure in Merion's famed Cobb's Creek. At the par-5 fourth, Donald's ball came up shot of the green but the thick rough fortuitously kept his ball from rolling down into the water. Donald, on the other hand, jumped right in:
Even Donald, regarded as the best short-game player in the world, could not get the ball anywhere near the hole or even on the green.
If this first hour of the leaders final round is any indication, it's going to be a long but entertaining afternoon in Philly.
