Justin Rose has been one of the world’s best golfers for the past 15+ years, winning a US Open, an Olympic Gold Medal and the FedEx Cup.

The Englishman, who has also been World No.1, reminded us all just how difficult golf can be during the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Rose found himself in a greenside bunker on the par-5 12th hole, his third hole of the day, and hit a huge shank completely out of the blue.

The 40-year-old’s ball came rifling out of the hosel, leaving him 55 yards away from the hole.
