WATCH: Collin Morikawa makes 10 (!) on par-5 with two water balls at BMW Champ

Spare a thought for Collin Morikawa, who made golf look like the most relatable sport on Sunday at the BMW Championship. 

Morikawa came into the second leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs buoyed by some tinkering with his putting

He switched up his famous claw grip to a traditional one and it appeared to pay dividends over the course of the week. 

Morikawa, the 149th Open winner, had moved himself to within striking distance of the leaders at Wilmington Country Club in Delaware.

Then, in a flash, he was out of it and he dropped down the leader board with an almighty crash. This was hard to watch.

Morikawa wasn't having the best day anyway. He made the turn in 2-over par 37. Then at the par-4 11th, he four-putted for a double-bogey.

But his nightmare truly began at the next hole. He sent his tee shot way right to begin with and laid up before duly sticking not one ... but two in the water. 

No bueno, Co11in

By the time he got to the fringe of the green, he was playing his seventh stroke. Shot number eight left him about eight feet to tidy up. 

Two more putts followed for the 25-year-old. He was absolutely disgusted with himself and marched off the green. A quintuple-bogey! 

This was the highest score he had ever recorded in his PGA Tour career. He sent golf social media into a bit of a meltdown with this. 

Memes followed: one of us, one of us. We wonder how long it will take him to cool off after this one.
