Hosung Choi might have one of the most bizarre golf swings the game has ever seen, but sometimes it goes a little wrong. That was evident when WHIFFING his driver on the last hole at the Korea Professional Golf Tour’s Busan Gyeongnam Open on Saturday
Choi's driver, as you can see from the video below, hits the ground well before the ball. As his driver goes over the ball, it falls off the tee peg. To his credit after such a shocking mistake for a Tour pro, he went on to make a bogey.

The incident comes six months after Choi struck his playing partner with his driver on the tee - WATCH HERE.
The 46-year-old had got off to a great start in the tournament with rounds of 63 and 68, but then struggled over the weekend with rounds of 74 and 72 to fall back into a tie for 39th and 10 strokes off the winning score.
Choi is currently ranked 223rd in the world rankings and he won the HEIWA PGM Championship in November.
He made his PGA Tour debut last year on a sponsor exemption at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am but he missed the cut.

Choi won his first tournament at the Enjoy Jakarta Indonesia PGA Championship, co-sanctioned by the OneAsia Tour and Japan Golf Tour, and this made him eligible for Japan Golf Tour membership, which he has mantained ever since.
What many people don't know about Choi is that when he was just 19 years old, he lost part of his thumb in an chainsaw accident.
According to the PGA Tour, "his thumb was reattached through a skin graft that included a piece of skin from his stomach."
