Manchester United legend Paul Scholes plays shot of the BMW PGA Championship!

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes will forever be known for his footballing skills as a midfielder. But us golfers will never forget this magic moment from Scholesy out of the greenside bunker at Wentworth on Wednesday.

Seemingly short-sighted and in deep trouble as he shuffled his feet into the sand at the par-4 11th during the BMW PGA Championship Pro-Am, Scholes made little fuss of proceedings and splashed his ball out and into the cup.

To add to the excitement of it all, Scholes was given the full build-up live on air. Watch below...

 

 

Scholes was playing in the same group as Rory McIlroy and his former Manchester United team-mates Teddy Sheringham and Michael Carrick.

Pep Guardiola, Peter Schmeichel and Matt Le Tissier played alongside Tommy Fleetwood while Alan Shearer, Ian Wright and Gianfranco Zola went out with Ian Poulter.
