Gary Woodland strips to his pants to play approach at Honda Classic

Powered by National Club Golfer

The PGA National Course has been known to pull a few players’ pants down over the years.

There’s water hazards at every turn and the Bear Trap - holes 15, 16, 17 - is statistically one of the toughest three-hole stretches on the PGA Tour. Just ask eventual winner Adam Scott who went in the water twice on 15 during his third round.

During the final round, Gary Woodland found himself in the water on the par-4 6th but rather than taking a drop - he dropped his pants and attempted to play it from the water.

It was early in the round so we’ll forgive him for not wanting to get his trousers wet.

He also had to suffer the indignity of drying his feet with a towel and then putting his trousers back on at the side of the fairway.

The gamble paid off as he managed to reach the grenade bunker then get up and down for par.

He then dropped three shots at the Bear Trap on his way to a 78 and a tie for 61st place.
