Kevin Na shoots a 16 on a par-four hole [Video]

If you think you are having a bad day at the office, just compare it with Kevin Na's day Thursday and you'll feel a lot better.

Na set a record for the worst par-four hole in PGA Tour history, shooting a 12-over 16 on the ninth hole of the Texas Open in San Antonio. His problems included an unplayable lie from the tee, a two-stroke penalty after the ball ricocheted off a tree and struck him, and five consecutive shots from the woods.

To top it off, Na walked off the hole thinking he had shot only 11-over, but another stroke was added after he watched a video replay before signing his scorecard.

Despite all that, he was four-under on the other 17 holes and finished the round with an eight-over 80. Maybe they can pair him with Rory McIlroy in the next round.

The worst single-hole score at a PGA Tour event belongs to John Daly, who had an 18 on the par-five sixth hole at Bay Hill in 1998.

Is Tiger Woods back or was the Masters a case of playing the right course?
