Duodecuple bogey

Most amateur golfers are well aware of double and triple bogeys and perhaps up to quintuple bogeys, after which they revert to other descriptive terms.  A story at The Telegraph describes the travails of professional golfer Kevin Na, who took sixteen strokes on a par 4 hole at the Texas Open.

This is the highest par-four score since PGA Tour records began..."only two strokes fewer than John Daly had taken in a spectacularly grim 18 on Bay Hill’s par-five sixth in 1998."

BTW, he is not a bad golfer.  A routine par on the hole would have placed him within a shot of the lead.
