Participants in the U.S. Open local qualifier Thursday at the Country Club at Emerald Hills likely expected to face the usual litany of hazards: namely water, rough and bunkers. They probably didn't expect to have to carve an approach shot around a moving vehicle.
As Deadspin reports, one player managed to take a video of a woman, presumably lost, driving her car down the cart path of the 11th hole, ultimately winding up in a waste bunker. According to pictures of the Hollywood, Fla. course, that particular hole doesn't exactly border a surface street, so the driver in question may have been cruising down the cart path for quite some time before finding the sand.
Despite the unexpected drive-through, the qualifier went on as scheduled. Five players shot 71 or better to advance to the sectional stage, including Manuel Villegas, brother of Camilo who medaled with a 68, and PGA Tour veteran Marc Turnesa, who carded a 69.
