Nick Watney Hits The Third Double Eagle In U.S. Open History
When it rains [double eagles], it pours [double eagles]. And by that, we mean there was one at the Masters, and just now one at the U.S. Open. Still, one double eagle per major is a pretty torrid pace as far as double eagles go, no? The U.S. Open edition comes via Nick Watney, whose albatross earlier was the third in U.S. Open history (though second in the last three years).
Nice to make up three shots with one swing. And that ball didn’t even have to do some insane roll across the width of the green or anything: that was right on target. All the more impressive since the U.S. Open is about the last event where we’d picture anyone getting double eagles. This is where scores are supposed to be the highest of any of the majors. This is where Tiger Woods can lap the field by 15 shots and still hit a triple bogey over the course of his tournament.
But none of that, we suppose, means an insane shot can’t get hit every now and again. Time will tell if he can ride this little wave of momentum, or whether his U.S. Open will turn back into a regular U.S. Open.
