When you watch professional golfers on television, sometimes it's hard to believe that they're playing the same game as the rest of us. The drives are long, the approach shots hit the green, and the putts break the way they're supposed to. You'd think they'd never heard of the word "shank" in their lives.But occassionally even golfing's elite can descend to the level of the everyday hacker. "When Bad Things Happen to Good Golfers" recounts those rare moments when the game's greatest have shown their human side. Here you'll read about such gut-wrenching moments as Arnold Palmer's famed "dirty dozen" at the Los Angeles Open in 1961, Greg Norman's collapse at the 1996 Masters, and Tiger Woods's whiff and other misadventures in the thick gorse of Royal Troon at the 1997 British Open.
