It might seem like "The Bear Trap" gets a little too much attention during the Honda Classic, but there's a reason why it's one of the most talked about stretches in golf. It's difficult, and it can get any golfer. At any time.
Adam Scott became the latest notable victim on Saturday, creating a disaster that seemingly came out of nowhere. Scott arrived on the 15th tee on Saturday at the Honda Classic with a three-shot lead and working on an incredible seven under score for his round. And then. . . splash.
Scott then went to the par-3's drop area for his third shot, and. . . splash again.
Scott wound up making a shocking quadruple-bogey 7 to drop a shot behind playing partner Sergio Garcia, who made par. Incredibly, it wasn't Scott's worst career score on the hole. The Aussie made an 8 there in the first round in 2011.
After an errant drive on the next hole, Scott bounced back nicely by making a scrambling par and then a birdie to take back the lead -- at least, momentarily -- on No. 17. How rare of a feat was that on one of golf's toughest stretches? It was Scott's first birdie in nine career rounds playing The Bear Trap.
