THE Web.com Tour’s tournament in the Bahamas this week is making history for several reasons, including setting an unofficial record for number of balls lost by a single player.
The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic is unique as the first event on the secondary US tour to run from Sunday to Wednesday, but it has also been hit by horrific weather which has seen another couple of records set.
The highest cutline in the circuit’s history came on Tuesday US time at 11-over-par while American player Greg Eason revealed he had lost 32 golf balls over the two rounds at the Greg Norman-designed Sandals Emerald Bay.
Eason signed for scores of 91-95 for the first 36 holes to be last in the field.
“I started with 36 golf balls. I ended with four,” Eason was quoted as saying on the Tour’s Twitter feed.

A lesson for us all.
