    AT & T Classic.

    Franklin Langham starts on Hole 10.

    Promptly takes a 13.

    +8 after one fucking hole.


    EDIT: Made the turn in a smooth 50!

    Currently +16 after 13 holes.

    No way does he break 90.

    EDIT: Just tripled a hole......his second triple of the day.

    Now sitting at +19 with 4 holes left to play.

    I say this in all seriousness......he may not break 100.

    Shockingly, Langham didn't post a score, according to PGATour.com, and withdrew.

    But he's not at the bottom of the leaderboard. Ryan Armour got DQ'd, giving him that distinction.

    I'd love to take a 13 on the first hole each round I play -- that would ensure I'd cut at least seven strokes off my average........ ;D

    Does anyone know how he made 13? I looked through the AJC and see no details. It looks to be a par-5 that's reachable by many pros in two; looks like there's OB on both sides, so I guess he could have hit a few off the property.

    I'm guessing really bad hangover.

    I've had the opportunity to play the course a handful of times, and I always struggle with no. 10. Traps all along the fairway, long hole distance wise. But, even as a below average hacker, I'll score a snowman at worst. Maybe a nine once.

    I have no idea how he got a 13. I think there is a small pond to the left of the green, and some deep brush OB left, but I can only surmise he must have hit into the living rooms of several houses lining the hole or into the beer truck or porta-potty along the right hand side.

    We've all been there. Just don't want to miss the comebacker as well.
