You hear it all the time at a U.S. Open -- to avoid the big number, you've got to "take your medicine."
That's exactly what Ken Duke did when faced with an unfortunate break at the par-3 ninth hole. His tee shot wound up behind a clump of grass. Rather than play a hero shot, Duke putted the ball back into the bunker.
From there, he holed out for your average, run-of-the-mill par.
