Watch: Ian Poulter cards disastrous quad-bogey at US Open
Pebble Beach is the type of golf course where you can ruin your entire weekend with one tough hole, but Ian Poulter can’t really blame the challenging layout for his embarrassing quadruple-bogey during the second round of the US Open on Friday.
Poulter got into some trouble on the 3rd hole when his ball ended up in an impossible spot near the green. That’s when he briefly turned into a casual weekend golfer and simply could not chip the ball out of the rough. His first attempt went literally nowhere, and the second went about two feet.

Poulter entered No. 3 with a score of 2-over for the tournament, and he ended up carding an 8. That could be the difference between him making and missing the cut. We have seen Poulter hit some incredibly lucky shots at major championships in the past, but that was not his finest moment.
