CHASKA, Minn. – Funny story from late Wednesday afternoon here at the PGA Championship.

A young boy and his father were walking down the left side of the par-5 11th fairway when a golf ball doinked the son on the back.

After a few minutes, they discovered that it was Paul Azinger, who was out for a practice round alone with only his family walking along. Azinger saw the ball and shouted to the boy that he should pick it up for a souvenir. Then the former Ryder Cup captain asked if it hit him. When the boy acknowledged that it did, Azinger inquired whether it hurt.

'No,' the youngster said without hesitation.

'I wish I'd have hit it hard enough to where you said it hurt a little,' Azinger deadpanned, poking fun of his own declining power off of the tee.
