2012 U.S. Open: Joe Ogilvie Shoots 9-Over In Final Round, Has Choice Words Toward USGA

Joe Ogilvie shot the worst score on Sunday's final round of the 2012 U.S. Open by shooting a 9-over par. Overall, Ogilvie finished dead last with a 23-over par for the tournament. On his final round Ogilvie had 10 bogies, seven pars and only one birdie.

When Ogilvie was done he had some choice words for USGA executive director Mike Davis:

The reference to Shinnecock goes back to the 2004 U.S. Open was held at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, N.Y., where the players complained about the harsh conditions.

Ogilvie also said that the pin set up on the 18th hole might lead to the "most tragic finish in championship golf."

The USGA is known for wanting to test golfers at the U.S. Open, but Ogilvie might just be bitter since he shot the worst round on Sunday and finished last.
