Golfer Brendon Todd fell out of contention thanks to an extremely relatable meltdown

PGA golfer Brendon Todd was playing some great golf all weekend at the Travelers Championship. With just seven holes remaining, Todd found himself in second place and just two strokes off the lead. He had to be feeling good about that position.

But golf — at any given moment — has a tendency to humble even the most talented of golfers.

On Sunday, it was Todd’s turn.

Todd went into the par-4 12th two strokes off Dustin Johnson’s lead, but he’d end up heading to the 13th five strokes off he lead and basically out of contention. That’s because Todd — seemingly out of nowhere — experienced a golf meltdown that had him looking like a regular, amateur golfer.

It doesn’t get much more relatable than that: Finding yourself chipping just off the edge of the bunker and blasting the ball over the green completely. We’ve all been there.

Todd would have to escape the 12th with a triple bogey. But hey, at least there wasn’t a crowd to witness that meltdown in person.

A 10!

That was the first time Tiger has ever had a double-digit score in his legendary career and it was just brutal to watch.

The last time we saw Tiger on the back nine at the Masters he was going on an incredible run that would see him win his fifth green jacket.

This time he was going through a sleeve...

Bryson DeChambeau's score disappointed at the Masters, but his bravado didn't

If we're holding Bryson DeChambeau to his own standards, he finished at 18-over par at the Masters at Augusta National this weekend.

Yes, I know he was 2-under par on the scorecard. But DeChambeau doesn't play on the normal scorecard -- or on the same plane of reality. He was playing Augusta as a par-67, not the standard 72. That's what he said at least.

But that comment and result sums up DeChambeau's weekend, doesn't it? He ultimately failed to meet the high expectations set by his U.S. Open win. But that doesn't necessarily mean he wilted under the...

Dustin Johnson breaks into tears after winning the Masters: 'It's hard to talk'

Dustin Johnson won the Masters Sunday, shooting a 68 to finish the tournament at -20, a new record. It marked his first Masters win and second major championship (he won the U.S. Open in 2016.)

Johnson shared an embrace with his partner, Paulina Gretzky, after securing the win. He received his green jacket from last year's champion, Tiger Woods. And then the 36-year-old, who grew up in Columbia, South Carolina, about an hour from Augusta, was asked what finally winning the historic tournament, played in the fall for the first time due to the Covid-19 pandemic, meant to him.

He did his...
