49ers kicker Robbie Gould found himself in a tough spot after an errant golf shot left him out of bounds during the 18th and final hole Saturday, but then a spectator made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.
The fan told Gould, along the shores of Lake Tahoe (where — spoiler alert for “The Godfather Part II” — fictional character Fredo Corleone met his demise), he would drink an entire beer all at once if Gould got out of it.
“Well I was going to lay up, but he was like, ‘I’ll shotgun a beer if you put it on the green,’” Gould said. “So I was like, ‘You know I’m vying for like 20th place, so got nothing to lose.’ So I hooked an 8-iron up around the tree and it landed on the green and stayed on there, so he ended up shotgunning a beer.”
The 13-year NFL veteran went on to end the second round with a score of 78, for an overall American Century Championship total of 24.
