… ‘Cos that’s how he rolls.

After carding an eagle and a par to open his final round, Garcia ambled towards Doral’s third tee, where, unbeknownst to him, he would assume the role of Kevin Costner in an impromptu reenactment of Tin Cup‘s finale.

A pushed drive found the water hazard guarding the right edge of the fairway, and the resulting drop left the Spaniard with an awkward carry of over 200 yards to the putting surface.

Rather than chop a lay-up to the wide part of the fairway, Garcia attempted the spectacular THREE TIMES before finally sending a solid effort careening over the green. A flubbed pitch and two putts applied the finishing touches to an octuple-bogey (the 10th highest score in PGA Tour history, according to this handy Golf Digest countdown).

Garcia declined to speak to reporters after the round.
