Harold Varner III is currently tied for ninth at the Charles Schwab Challenge after four-putting from inside 12 feet. This moment should teach us all to never give up on our golf games. We’re just one lesson or hot dog at the turn away from stardom.
So thank you for this, Harold.
Don’t do the 12’s like that 😭 pic.twitter.com/LYLOdX83Wz

That first stroke is understandable. Given Varner III’s positioning Sunday, you never want to blow a putt outside of 10 feet past the cup — he then left it short. We’ve all been there, and even more so after he overcompensated by blowing the next one left edge six feet by. At this point we have to imagine nerves have set in, and any uneasiness over a putt isn’t helping a player find the bottom of the cup. That third stroke was never dropping.
Harold Varner III, with Jordan 12’s on his feet, pours in putt number four for his second double bogey in a row. Three players are currently tied for first at -9 while Varner III sits at -5 — that tragic timing to blow up on the green likely cost the no. 37 player in the world some money and possibly a trophy.
Golf is hard.

And here I thought it was for the two triples and two doubles on the back and the 45 on the back…..
I felt bad for this guy. He was in contention all tournament and then the wheels came off. He has a great tee to green game. Just needs to get his putting right to get some Ws.
