Professional golfer loses 32 golf balls in two days
The Web.com Tour takes place on the Bahamas this time – and while you may now be picturing some paradise-like beaches, the island had some unexpected surprises in terms of weather conditions for the golfers.
It’s not unusual for the golf sport to write some hilariously strange stories. But this one really is a huge surprise, even for our editorial staff – and believe us, we’ve already seen a lot.
This year’s Web.com Tour at the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic could have been a heavenly event, marked by beautiful landscapes and great weather. But everything came different this time: wind velocities up to 65 kilometers per hour made for some chaos on the greens.
British pro golfer Greg Eason played a 91 on the first day of the tour, followed by a 95 on the second – but he payed a quite funny price for it: Within those two days, he lost no less than 32 balls.
“I started with 36 balls and finished my second round with four”, he commented on his game after the first days. The reason for this, of course, were not his golf skills, but the extreme weather conditions during the tournament.

We were looking forward to the Web.com Tour on the Bahamas, but we sure did not expect such weather conditions on the paradisiacal island. Still, it’s fun to watch all those golf balls disappear in the rain storms!
