Adam Scott had a hole in Saturday's third round of the Honda Classic that every amateur could relate to, and cringe just a little bit.

When he stepped up to the teeing ground at the par-3 15th hole, Scott held a three-shot lead over the field. When he finally tapped in for a quadruple-bogey 7, he was one behind. In between, Scott suffered every amateur golfer's nightmare when facing a carry over a water hazard. Twice.

Here's the official breakdown of Scott's shot-by-shot:

1. Tee shot is short of the green and in the water.

2. Penalty stroke.

3. Shot from drop zone is over the green, bounces in the rough and dribbles into the water.

4. Penalty stroke.

5. Shot from drop zone lands six feet from the flag.

6. Putt lips the right edge.

7. Tap-in.

In case you missed it, or just want to commiserate, here's all seven strokes.

 

 

 

 

Amazingly, Scott had played incredibly well to that point of his round. At one point, he made four consecutive birdies. Check out this approach shot at No. 9:

 

 

And despite that 7, Scott still shot a 66 and shared the lead with Sergio Garcia after 54 holes. If he happens to pull off the victory, according to the PGA Tour, Scott would be the first Tour winner with a quadruple bogey on his card since Phil Mickelson did it on the way to the 2009 Tour Championship.
