LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The seventh hole at Valhalla almost ruined Graham DeLaet’s chances Saturday at the PGA Championship.

It’s an interesting hole that forces you to choose off the tee. Be aggressive and hit the narrow fairway to the left and have a shorter second shot in, but over water. Or, play it safe and hit it out to the right and work your way around the water in three shots.

On moving day, DeLaet chose to be aggressive. He hit the runway to his left skirting just to the first cut, but his second shot, a high cut into the wind with a fairway wood from 247 yards splashed into the water and it looked like the Weyburn, Sask., native’s hopes were sunk.

It was a double-bogey and the Canadian showed his frustration as he was trying to figure out where to drop. Fans, thinking he was searching for his ball, continued to point out that it went into the drink, and DeLaet finally snapped: “I know it’s in the water,” he yelled.
