Golfer Inadvertently Hit Building

Golfer Inadvertently Hit Building at St. Andrews

In celebration of its 150th anniversary, the Open Championship will return to St. Andrews for the first time in 150 years, and it will be a fantastic occasion.

Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, and Seve Ballesteros are just a few of the famous names who have competed for the Claret Jug at the storied golf course in Scotland.

The Old Course presents numerous challenges, and golfers from all walks of life and with varying levels of ability have taken on the infamous links throughout history.

Some consider St. Andrews to be one of the most accessible courses for PGA Tour professionals, owing to the fact that some of the fairways and greens are exceptionally large and inviting.

However, there are many holes that are difficult to play, and there is perhaps no tougher hole than the Road Hole, which challenges players from every direction.

The golfer in the footage above learned this the hard way. Teeing it up on the 17th tee box, he looked to be aiming at the building to the right of the hole.

Admittedly, this tee shot does usually require you to cut the corner off to some degree, however, to aim so far right seemed a risk too far.

He hits his drive and after a couple of seconds in the air, the ball rebounds backwards and then sideways in the opposite direction.

Luckily, no damage was done to the windows in the building or any of the players on the tee box. In fact, they saw the funny side of things.

Some golf fans left comments on the video:

“Imagine aiming that way, and expecting a different result,” one fan said.

“Hahaha. That is exactly what I did. Still regret trying to hit over the edge of the building,” one fan commented.

“I can’t stop watching and laughing,” another fan said.

“Dude looks like he is aiming straight at the building,” another fan commented.

“Road hole means something different way to me,” one fan said.
