Sandy Lyle's Masters farewell probably didn't start the way he would've liked at Augusta National.
The 65-year-old is making his 42nd and final Masters appearance this year.
The Scottish golfer won his green jacket back in 1988 in addition to winning the Open Championship in 1985.
He also won four other PGA Tour victories during his professional career.
But his final first shot of The Masters was less than ideal.
Lyle hit his tee shot into the trees, and reportedly was heard yelling: "Oh rubbish!"
According to Martin Dempster, Lyle then played his second shot left-handed because he was in a spot of bother.
But instead of landing in the fairway, his shot hit a cameraman on the course. Lyle's caddie was reportedly spotted holding a snapped club.
Eventful start for Sandy Lyle in his 42nd and final @TheMasters, pushing tee shot at 1st into trees. From under a low trunk, he played left-handed second shot that didn't find fairway as it hit a cameraman and also resulted in his club snapping but made a great 5@ScotsmanSport pic.twitter.com/UHnpgX0Snb— Martin Dempster (@DempsterMartin) April 6, 2023
Luckily for Lyle, he was able to recover on the hole and escape with only a bogey-5.
He made three more bogeys through his front 9 and was four-over at the turn.
