Andrey Pavlov cards 17 on Par 5
By Peter Santo
Golf is hard. European Tour player Andrey Pavlov learned that the hard way, hitting his ball in the water six times on his way to a 17 on the par 5 first hole at the Lyoness Open. This is the second highest score on a single hole in European Tour history. Pavlov eventually signed for an 18-over 90, after shooting a 1-under 71 in the opening round on thursday. This week marked Pavlov’s 15th career missed cut in 15 career starts on the European and Challenge Tours.
