When Ryo Ishikawa donned his golf shoes for the first round of the US PGA, the last thing on his mind would have been a score of 85.
However, the Japanese golfing sensation known for his flamboyant golf clothing, who has been in good form recently, carded six double bogeys, two bogeys and ten pars.
The 19-year-old ended up losing track of how many balls he hit in the water during his 85.
"I didn't count them," Ishikawa said through a translator. "This course has so many water holes, every time I made a mistake it seemed to go in the water."
Ishikawa said his swing felt "stiff" on the morning of the first round and it got stiffer with every bad shot.
Tiger Woods also struggled in the first round in Atlanta, carding a seven-over score of 77, 14 shots off the lead.
The former world number one said he was angry with his performance, explaining that he had concentrated too much on his swing during the early part of the round.
