Before attempting an 18-foot putt at Westwood Country Club on Wednesday afternoon, local man Mark Eichorst found himself unsure of why he even bothered to crouch down and read the green.

“As if it’s going to make any difference,” Eichorst said to himself, crouching momentarily behind his ball while apathetically examining his lie in accordance with the pin. “Maybe it will break right? I don’t know,” he said, standing back upright. “I’ll just try not to hit it too hard.”

According a source within the foursome, Eichorst declined to make an attempt at reading the green on either of his next two putts.
