This year's Valero Texas Open marks the five-year anniversary of the 16 that Kevin Na made on the ninth hole in the first round. Skratch TV commemorated the occasion with this funny video. Na's struggle to extricate himself from the trees at TPC San Antonio made for quite the spectacle, but his 16 was far from the highest score in PGA TOUR history. Here's a chart of the highest single-hole scores in PGA TOUR history.
