As always, golf is frustrating.
Emiliano Grillo was the first round co-leader and one off the 36-hole lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational but will start the final round at Bay Hill Club & Lodge several shots back.
The Argentine shot a 6-over 78 on the day, putting him eight behind co-leaders Charley Hoffman and Kevin Kisner.
The culprit for Grillo’s bad day? Well, it’s more than one thing, but the par-5 sixth certainly deserves a fair portion of the blame.
Grillo was already 2 over for the day coming to the boomerang, water-shrouded hole. After finding the fairway, Grillo produced a disaster on the hole, finding the water on his next two approach shots.
But Grillo actually added a third object to the nearby lake: His 3-iron. Out of frustration, Grillo chucked the offending club into the water at six.
Grillo would make a quadruple bogey on the hole. And he’d follow with a birdie at the next hole. Go figure.
Still, if you’re going to accuse Grillo of anything, you can’t say he hasn’t contributed a good deal of items to the water at Bay Hill’s sixth.
