Sunday was not a good day for Scott Langley. The 25-year-old PGA Tour pro was in the final group at the Memorial, trailing Bubba Watson by a shot heading into the final round and looking for his first ever win on the US PGA Tour.
Langley shot a 79 on Sunday, and it didn't have a ton of highlights besides this birdie putt he faced on the par-3 16th hole. Playing alongside Watson, who was struggling himself, Langley hit a nice tee shot on the par-3 and had a good look at birdie to, if nothing else, earn him a couple more quid before he departed Muirfield Village.
The birdie putt looked perfect, and was sliding toward the cup as it started to run out of steam.
But Langley and Watson waited ... and waited ... and waited ... and finally saw the birdie putt drop as Watson put his arm up in the air and Langley landed his highlight of the day.
There is a 10-second rest rule that is applied in these types of situations once the player has approached the ball, but according to US PGA officials Langley's shot fell eight seconds into that count.
