Jerry Pate had some fun at the expense of his partner Ben Crenshaw after the duo posted a 5-under at Top of the Rock during the opening-round of the Bass Pro Shops Legends.
Pate could barely contain himself describing how Crenshaw, a two-time Masters champ, had to make a pit stop, at the turn, to buy two sleeves of golf balls after losing five on the first nine holes.

“This man, in nine holes, ONLY LOST 5 balls, on a PAR-3 COURSE,” a laughing Pate said. “Swear to you… had to go in and get 6 more balls, and he only lost one the second nine (laughing)… he holds the record.”
Golf is indeed a strange game.
