Na records 10 on 12th hole at Augusta

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Kevin Na made history two years ago with a 16 on the ninth hole at TPC San Antonio during the first round of the Valero Texas Open.

Sunday, he added to that dubious honor with a 10 on the par-3 12th hole Augusta National after hitting his tee shot into the water three consecutive times.

"It happens," said Na, who hit 8-iron all three times. "I went for the flag, obviously you're not supposed to, but I'm back of the field, trying to make a birdie, maybe a 1.

"I hit a bad shot and I wanted to try it again and hit another bad one. There was no point in me going to the drop zone. Plus, the drop zone it's actually a very difficult shot with the right pin. You have no room to work with."

Na's not-so-perfect 10 was the highest single-hole score recorded this week, surpassing Hiroyuki Fujita's 9 on the par-5 13th in the second round.

Give Na credit, though. He tipped his cap to the crowd after putting out.

The highest-ever score recorded on No. 12 was a 13 by Tom Weiskopf in 1980, which also matches the highest single-hole score in Masters history.
