Although many of the world’s best players are in Texas for the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club, an opposite-field event is also underway in the Dominican Republic.
During the second round of the Corales Puntacana Championship at Puntacana Resort and Club, Tyler Duncan stepped up to his tee shot on the par-4 15th. As soon as he made contact with the golf ball, his driver head flew off the shaft, leaving him holding a headless big stick.
The best part? He’d go on to birdie the hole.
Duncan signed for a second-round 7-under 65 and was tied for fourth.
Well, that’s not supposed to happen.
