Social media golf sensation Paige Spiranac tweeted that watching Will Zalatoris miss a two-foot putt with his dodgy putting stroke "made her gag" during the first round of the WGC Match Play.
Despite going 1up on his opponent Andrew Putnam with a birdie at the par-4 1st, Zalatoris was suddenly 1 down by the time he missed a short putt on the par-3 4th.
It's no secret to many ardent PGA Tour fans that Zalatoris tends to struggle with his putting from close range, and the story was no different on day one of the WGC Match Play. The yip, the putt, it was a tough watch.
It even made Spiranac 'gag'.

Zalatoris bounced back with a birdie to get back to level, but Putnam turned the screw on the back nine and ran out a 3&2 victory.
Putnam now sits atop of Group 7 alongside Ryan Fox, who took care of Harris English 2&1.
Only the winner of the group will progress into the knockout stage of the tournament, which takes place on Saturday morning.
Zalatoris will now need to win both of his remaining matches against Fox and English in order to progress to the weekend.
Elsewhere in round one, Rory McIlroy used a different putter to see off Scott Stallings 3&1, while Rickie Fowler caused one of the shocks of the day when taking down World No.2 Jon Rahm.
