PGA Championship 2021: Viktor Hovland asking 'how much to cover the crap' was the ultimate Kiawah moment
You don’t want to miss in the wrong spot at the Ocean Course at Kiawah. We’ve seen pros in trouble early on Thursday—with impossible lies in the thick heather around this seaside Pete Dye faux-links layout.
Viktor Hovland has done a nice job avoiding the thick stuff so far. Mostly. He narrowly avoided a bunker at the fourth hole but barely had a stance. That led to a intriguing exchange with his caddie Shay Knight as they debated Hovland’s options.
And like most of us, Hovland asked his caddie for some crucial information: “How much to cover the crap?” And the former Oklahoma State golfer couldn't help but laugh at the situation he was in ... the below back-and-forth is so good.
Hovland did end up covering the "crap" with his second shot and did well to scramble for a par.
We're likely to see pros in some interesting spots all week, but it'll be tough to top this exchange with the young Norweigan and his caddie.
