After spraying his tee shot left in the hazard on the first hole of the playoff at the Wells Fargo Championship, Roberto Castro needed to hit it to a foot. 

The golf gods got the signals crossed somewhere. 

Instead of puting it close, Castro flushed a choked-up wood over the green and into the loafer of an unsuspecting patron. 

Castro did get a drop and actually wound up with a good chance to chip it in for a four to keep the pressure on his playing partner James Hahn. That shot looked good until sliding by the hole on the right side. 

Hahn wound up two-putting for par to win the hole and the tournament. 

If this were horse racing — like say, the Kentucky Derby — James Hahn won by a nose. The golf corrallary in this case would Roberto Castro lost by a foot.
