Unfortunate name

I was watching the 2015 Canadian Open (yeh, who knew?) and saw this on the TV screen:


I burst out laughing, and took the photo to share with others, thinking they too would find it funny. Apparently it’s not as funny to others as to me. The golfer’s name is Garrett Rank, and he’s an amateur golfer playing in the Open (by qualifying, or by invitation) hence the (A) after his name. I saw this and read it literally: Rank amateur, which is something no golfer wants to be called. In fact, Rank is a ranked amateur: the World Amateur Golf Rankings place him number 312 at present. He missed the cut for the Canadian Open.

Well, I had a good laugh at it.
