Appleby's rough adventure

Stuart Appleby has won the Shell Houston Open twice (1999, 2006) but he will be fighting to make the cut after carding a nine on the par-4 fifth.

Appleby smacked his first two tee shots into the water left of the fairway on the 480-yard hole. It's easy to do -- the yardage dares players to cut the corner -- but two of Appleby's drives landed in the lake.

Appleby, hitting five, found the fairway with his fifth shot and eventually holed out for a nine, dropping him to near the bottom of the leaderboard.
