Sahith Theegala’s crazy 10th hole: two drops, a garbage can and an SUV

Scottie Scheffler had the craziest day.

Sahith Theegala perhaps had the craziest gap.

Trying to stay within striking distance of leader Xander Schauffele late Friday afternoon at the PGA Championship, Theegala scored a wild bogey on the par-5 10th hole, with two free drops, a shot from the cart path that hit a tree, a hospitality area, a trash can, an SUV and finally, and somehow, just one dropped shot.

Let’s start the ride. Theegala double-crossed a driver and immediately dropped his bat as his ball sailed left into the trees near a catering area.

That’s where the first free dismay occurred, with Theegala choosing to fall onto a path.

From there, Theegala, still over 300 meters away, attempted his second shot and tried to pass some trees, but his ball hit a large trunk and bounced hard into the catering area before coming to rest next to a rubbish bin.

Theegala was given a free drop spot for the second time, even though a stone’s throw from Theegala’s nearest relief point was a tall pole and a silver SUV, believed to be parked there for advertising. The ESPN+ announced for the featured groups stated that Theegala wanted to move the SUV, although the vehicle ultimately remained where it was. A rules official moved the post for Theegala, who fell and then hit his third shot 211 yards deep into a bunker on the green.

Theegala blasted his fourth shot to 12 feet, missed the putt and then rolled in a shortie for a bogey to fall back to 9 under. He would later get that shot back with a birdie on No. 12, and after a second-round, 4-under 67, Theegala is just two shots shy of Schauffele’s leading score of 12 under.
