Justin Rose hit his tee shot within the water on the par-Three third throughout Thursday’s first spherical of the Zurich Basic of New Orleans, and thankfully his ball did stay playable. But when he was going to hit it out of the hazard, it could produce an enormous splash.
So the one method to make sure he wouldn’t break his pants through the shot was to take them off. That’s precisely what he did…
Sadly, Rose’s ball sailed some 40 toes past the pin. He two-putted from there for bogey, and Stenson made one as effectively. That’s a bogey in four-ball, which is a little bit of a killer.
However the pair is 7 below on its spherical with a couple of to play.
And Stenson should be proud. It’s been virtually a decade now for the reason that Swede stripped all the way down to his underwear to hit a shot from a muddy space within the water at Doral.
Truthfully, that story by no means will get previous.
And he’s impressed some followers, as Shawn Stefani went full Stenson eventually yr’s Honda Basic.
Rose, being the witty man he’s, didn’t let the very fact he was taking part in with Stenson while doing this slip by. Talking immediately on the TV cameraman, the Englishman remarked, “Do you keep in mind Doral? He’s not terrified of taking his pants off, so he mentioned, ‘Get in there.’ ”
Like every good teammate, Rose adopted orders.
Something for the workforce. Respect, Justin Rose.
