They call it a trunk slammer on the PGA Tour. It's when a player finishes his second round, throws his clubs in the trunk of his car and leaves the course as fast as he can. There's no reason for him to stick around to see if he has made the cut--his scorecard gives him the obvious answer. Danny Carroll had one of those days at the Nissan Open on Friday at Valencia Country Club. He shot 22-over-par 93, the highest round on the PGA Tour this season, for a two-day total of 168.
