I think that they may have possibly had a new grounds keeper helping when they set the new pins @ Pebble Beach.
I start to struggle trying to qualify for the VUSO. Back to back pars left me at 8 under through 10, and I really needed to start making some birds. I am in a bad spot on 11, but hit what I think is the perfect putt.
As I walk the putt in, I see the putt do... absolutely nothing. There is no lip out, no bump as if it is going to fast, nothing. It just keeps moving slowly right over the hole, painting the entire hole with it's vapor trail. lol This is not a complaint (or the first time), just a WTF just happened moment. It is not nearly as bad as hitting the invisible tree in the middle of Merion's 18th fairway, but worthy of a share for a laugh none the less.
Watching with the flag pulled and camera 2 is the best way to get maximum pleasure form this direct miss. lol
The return putt was a real knee knocker, wondering if the hole was there or not.
PS Thank you for the new pins WGT! What a fun change of pace.
