We have another serial shanker in Hunter Mahan who this time was on an incredible run of 22 birdies in 46 holes and he still manages to clip it right on to the next teeing ground. If there's anyone to blame, it's the commentator, who said seconds before his shot, "he's had a great week, arguably the best week of anybody up to this point". The ultimate jinx.

Strangely, the Americans other famous shank was also on the 5th hole of a golf course when he hit a wild shank at the PLAYERS Championship. After that particular shot, now golf pundit Nick Faldo had something to say on the American coverage as Mahan let go of the club, “Hello, rent a follow-thru for 3 easy payments of $39.95.” Fairly witty for the four-time major winner.

Next up, Darren Clarke...
