One of the most unforgettable moments from Sunday at The Players Championship came from Richard H. Lee. Unfortunately, that unforgettable moment is one that he would rather forget.

Lee, of course, is the guy who all but whiffed on not one but two little shots in a row on the 17th hole – and if you haven't seen the video, you can catch it right here

At least he accepted his ignominy with a sense of humor. 

"Well I had an interesting 17th hole... Two shots = ball moved 2 inches. Whiff + whiff," he tweeted Sunday night, adding the hashtag: #sportscenternottop10

On Monday, Lee tweeted again. This time, he provided his daughter's reaction:

Lee's wedge malfunction cost him a double bogey on No. 17 en route to a final-round 73. He tied for 65th at TPC Sawgrass, and will be right back at it this week at the HP Byron Nelson Championship – where, hopefully, he'll do better than his daughter
