An ugly yank and more shot tracker art

Standing on the 7th tee, both Jim Furyk and Jason Dufner were tied for the PGA Championship lead at 10-under. But both promptly yanked their tee shots to the left, pulling them into some of the thickest rough on the course on a hole that's been one of Oak Hill's three toughest all week.

Furyk's wasn't terrible, just a little overdrawn and the ball kicked into the thick stuff. Dufner's, however, was completely pulled, leading to this unattractive shottracker image from CBS (via Shane Bacon):

Dufner got an awful lie and took his medicine to chop out into the fairway.

It was an ugly hook, but the shot tracker image was still nothing compared to Steve Stricker's shank the last time a major was played on American soil.
