Is this the WORST tee shot ever to be seen at St Andrews?

St Andrews is one of the most historic golf courses on the planet and if you've been lucky enough to play there, then I'm sure that standing on the first tee is a daunting experience. You want to get off to the best possible start and try to enjoy your round at Scotland's most iconic golf course, but sometimes it's simply not meant to be...

Nerves aside, it's not actually a very difficult tee shot on the first hole as the fairway is so wide, you'd have to do something pretty special to miss it. Well thanks to Twitter, we might have now seen the WORST first tee shot that St Andrews has ever seen...

A big thank you to @culley999 for sharing the epic moment, but we must send a bigger thank you to his brother's friend, the poor soul who took the shot itself.

Of course, when a video like this emerges on Twitter, you expect users that have seen it to have an absolute field day in the comments and that's exactly what they did.

"Everyone has been that soldier"

"That’s actually killed me. Love the composure at the top"

"Dream golf trip and you do that off the first tee LMAO."
