Gary Woodland had his foot on the accelerator for much of the week at the Workday Charity Open en route to a tie for fifth. Well, all week except for when jumping aboard a golf cart as the second round was halted due to the threat of lightning.
Woodland, 36, left his playing partners in hysterics as he proceeded to make a quick getaway from the course in a golf cart, only to reverse it straight into a fence. Watch the video below to see what happened (Woodland is in the middle cart)...

The hilarious moment was captured during the PGA Tour's live Featured Groups coverage.
Let's be honest, we have probably all done something similar to this in the past when it comes to a golf cart!
The reigning US Open champion recovered well from a slow opening 1-over 73 with rounds of 68, 66 and 69 to finish tied fifth on 12-under par and seven strokes off the pace.
It marked Woodland's best finish on the PGA Tour since golf's return during the coronavirus lockdown.
"I scored better," said Woodland.
"I've been fighting the swing really for a little bit now, so hopefully being here, I've got unbelievable practice facilities, I can get some stuff figured out the next couple of days, but it just shows I'm starting to become a complete player because the rest of my game, short game, putting, it was really good.
"Figure out the long swing, should be pretty good."
The PGA Tour remains at Muirfield Village this week for the Memorial Tournament.
"This is one of my favourite stops of the year," said Woodland. "I'm glad we are here for two weeks."
