Rory McIlroy was left with bitter memories of one hole in particular as he shot a closing 74 in the US PGA Championship.
The 22 year old US Open Champion played Atlanta Athletic Club's 475 yard third in six over par during the week - and the other 17 in the same score.
Not only that, but it was also where he injured his right arm hitting against a tree root in the opening round of the season's final Major.
McIlroy triple-bogeyed it in his last round, going over the green from a bunker and then three-putting from three feet, as he finished well outside the top 50 in an event he went into as favourite.
McIlroy said: "I have basically played 70 holes out of 72 not at 100 per cent, so it was frustrating not to be able to play the way I wanted to.
"But I got through the tournament and I was proud of that and I am looking forward just to taking a couple of weeks off and making sure that I come back fully fit when I’m ready."
He hopes that will be the Omega European Masters - the first Ryder Cup qualifying event - in Switzerland on September 1-4.
Asked if he was wiser now after what happened he replied: "I think so. If I get myself in the position again where there’s a tree root right next to my ball I might think twice about what shot I’m going to play.
"I am going to take a couple of weeks off to rest the wrist. I'm going to Cincinnati for a few days, home for the weekend and then go back out to New York.
"It will be nice and I will enjoy my two weeks off."
