My best shot of Friday's round followed one of my worst shots. I holed out (for par) from 30 yards left of the 18th green from right beside a tree. I had a decent lie and hit a LW that landed right on the edge of the green and I could tell it would be close as soon as it started rolling. It looked like one of my best putts.
Here in Argentina fathers are not allowed to follow their kids in the course on official tournaments. Why? Because one day one father beat up his daughter after a few bad holes... crazy people are everywhere.
In 1999 I was competing stroke play against another 2 players. It was the final stage after winning the local and regional tournaments. Because i was under 18 and i was playing far away from home i had a tutor to travel with me. He was a club pro that i never seen before. Leading by a couple of strokes in the last holes i hooked a tee shot into the left trees. Almost OB. He founded my ball and suggested me (i didn´t ask, didn´t need to) that i should not go for the green, just punch it out to the fairway. I let him know that a didn´t want his advice and that it maybe also inappropriate or illegal (because he could be considered part of my team).
I punched out because it was the right play to do and ended winning the tournament and the Cup by 3 strokes.
One father of the other boys complained to the committee that I had to be disqualified because I should be penalized with 2 strokes because of my tutor illegal advice. I literally wanted to kill my tutor...
The committee decided that the 2 stroke penalty was legit but didn´t disqualify me, they just added it to my score and won by one. The father and the boy where outraged but it was the final decision.
It's beside the point, but there have been people who have said "I don't think you can identify a GOAT, but if I had to pick, 18 > 14 so I would have to pick Jack." (Most are from back before April 2019.)
But like I said… beside the point.
