Englishman Matthew Fitzpatrick went very close to being a star of the latest golf fail while lining up a putt during his final round of the Czech Open on Sunday. In contention to win and on the ninth hole, Fitzpatrick fumbled his putter while lining up his putt and it very nearly fell on his golf ball.
It’s been drawing comparisons to Mike Clayton’s infamous, golf fail. Clayton dropped is putter during the 1997 Australian PGA Championship at New South Wales Golf Club which was only the beginning of one of golf’s great fails ever captured on video.
