‘I take full responsibility’: Kisner’s caddie nobly shoulders blame for unraked bunker at Bellerive

August 12, 2018

On Saturday at the PGA Championship, Gary Woodland’s round was disrupted by a bad lie in an unraked bunker at the 10th hole at Bellerive. Before reaching the 10th, Woodland was in second place. But Woodland’s triple bogey 7 on No. 10 sent him tumbling down the leaderboard.

Woodland’s fourth shot landed in the bunker, directly in the footsteps that he and his playing partner Kevin Kisner had made while playing previous sand shots. After the round, Kisner’s caddie, Duane Bock, posted on Twitter explaining why he had not raked the bunker and said that he takes “full responsibility” for what happened to Woodland:

For his part, Kisner wasn’t having it:
