PGA Tour Canada pro puts on heroic performance after airline loses his golf clubs and contact lenses

April 28, 2022

Tour pros battling through airlines losing their golf clubs is nothing new. Unfortunately, it's an unavoidable part of being a professional golfer. But there's one item that might be even more crucial to a player's success if he/she doesn't have great eyesight: contact lenses.

Rob Hudson was without either as he started an important week at PGA Tour Canada Q School. But thanks to the golf staff at Crown Isle Resort, he was able to cobble together a set of rentals and shoot an even-par 72 on Tuesday. And thanks to a special delivery from a local optometrist just before Wednesday's second round, he was able to do even better.

Hudson fired a bogey-free 67 to jump into a tie for sixth place through 36 holes at the four-round event that will award nine tour cards. Not surprisingly, it helps when you can actually see where you're hitting a golf ball.

Well done, Rob. It's not quite the level of Q School guts shown by Cody Blick a couple years back, but that's pretty darn impressive.

Good luck keeping it up and earning your card for next season. Oh, and good luck getting your bags back.
