Jacques Kruyswijk was playing at the Koro Creek Bushveld Golf Estate in South Africa in the Sunshine Tour’s (South African PGA Tour) Vodacom Origins of Golf Tournament when he played what will probably be the most painful golf shot of his career.
On the opening day’s play on the par-4 8th hole his ball was tight up against a tree trunk. Jacques decided to go in hard and attempted to cut the ball round the trunk.
As you will see in the video that wasn’t how his golf shot worked out with the ball ricocheting off the tree and right in to his groin.
To make matters worse he got a 1 stroke penalty for hitting himself with the ball.
