Two leading men. Two worlds apart. Two cold shanks.
Mark Wahlberg played the Waste Management Phoenix Open Pro-Am on Wednesday, and the left-hander hit a cold shank into the stands (!) on the famous par-3 16th hole. The best part about Wahlberg’s shank was Bubba Watson running through the video indicating that, yes, Wahlberg’s ball had gone deep into the stands.
Then on Thursday at the Dubai Desert Classic, European Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke shanked a wedge shot on the par-4 14th. Clarke made bogey and went on to shoot 75, which was actually two better than Tiger Woods on Thursday.
