We’re back for the first Card of the Week of the year. Each week I’ll be back with the most unusual, best, worst, overall greatest score card from the proceeding week on Tour. It may be a full round,nine holes, or simply a stretch of holes. Unusual is key. If you see a worthy card, don’t hesitate to send in a submission or tweet at us!
To make this comeback (please don’t call it that) extra special I’ve selected two cards this week, mainly because they have something in common: The Almighty Albatross (aka the double eagle for some odd reason). The most prized of single hole accomplishments, and this week we had two of them, both on the weekend. Daniel Berger had the first one on Saturday with a long iron from the fairway on the 6th hole. On Sunday, Zach Johnson carded his own with a slightly shorter iron on the much shorter 16th. Both players managed to play the par 5’s in a stupid six under par for their respective rounds. Which is helpful.
I didn’t even notice until now, but apparently the PGA leaderboard doesn’t put the proper color around the Albatrosses (Albatri?). “We’ll just show it as a par,” love it.
