There is nothing pants about Justin Rose's golf game, but that's exactly what the Englishman was reduced to on the par-3 third hole on day one of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. 

With the opening round being fourballs, Rose, playing with Henrik Stenson in the two-man team event at TPC Louisiana, was forced into playing the shot from water with his partner also in trouble on the same hole.

Rose asked Stenson whether he should attempt the shot, and the Swede - who famously played in a shot in JUST his boxers during round one of the 2009 WGC Championship - said "absolutely, what are you waiting for."

Here's a throwback to Stenson's efforts in 2009...
