Every golfer has nightmares of missing a one-foot put to win a championship. The only problem in Rancho Mirage, California was that I.K. Kim was awake and this was real. Kim had a one-foot putt on the 18th hole of the Kraft Nabisco Championship for par and the trophy and she did the unthinkable. Kim’s victory putt rimmed the cup and shot out back towards her, forcing her to tap in for bogey, erasing her one stroke lead. Oakley’s Sun Young Yoo was there, sporting her custom Flak Jacket sunglasses, one stroke behind the lead, ready to capitalize on Kim’s mistake. The tournament went to a playoff as a result of the epic miss and Yoo came out on top in the end.
