ishikawa woe

RYO ISHIKAWA went from hero to zero yesterday, the Japanese teenager dumping no fewer than six balls in the water as he compiled his worst round in four years as a professional -- a stunning 15-over par 85.

Just four days after his best finish in the US, a sixth place at Firestone, Ishikawa said he'd felt fine setting out. Yet he admitted "everything changed" when he hit his approach into water on his way to a double-bogey six at 11, his second hole.

Ishikawa made treble at the par-three 15th, bogey at 16, double-bogey five at 17 and another double-bogey at 18 and turned in 10-over. He clocked up two more doubles and a bogey, but recovered his composure to play the final five holes in even par.
