American professional Kevin Na took needed 16 shots to complete the par-four ninth at the Texas Open.
The 27-year-old carded the score, which is the highest on a par four since PGA records for scorecards began in 1983, during his round of 80.
His disastrous hole leaves him 13 strokes behind the joint leaders JJ Henry and Stewart Cink.
Na's shocking hole started with a wayward tee shot into the woods. He returned to the tee after declaring an unplayable lie only to hit his next tee shot into the same woods.
His fourth shot hit a tree and ricocheted onto his golf trousers, which cost him a further two shot penalty.
The American took six shots in the woods before finally reaching the green and ending his nightmare.
Usually, the terrible hole would become part of the history of the game, but Na had agreed to wear a microphone on the round for the Golf Channel, so his agony will be forever immortalised on tape.
