Ishikawa has brutal day with 85
Ryo Ishikawa nearly won the WGC-Bridgestone last week with stellar play. The 19 year old Japanese phenom has even shot 58 in the final round of a professional tournament to win.
Unfortunately, the tides turned today and he felt the other end of the spectrum with his golf game. He hit six balls into the water Thursday to card an 85, 22 strokes behind leader Steve Stricker.
At the diabolical closing stretch of holes 15-18, he made triple, bogey, double, and double. "I'm in the process of a swing change," Ishikawa said. "Last week it went well. This can still happen, though. It's not a surprise."
Today was just one of the days for Ishikawa. He's still going to have an awesome career.
