Henrik Stenson wasn’t happy with this shot either during the World Cup at Mission Hills in Southern China (Getty Images).

These guys are good…except when they hit shots like this.

Henrik Stenson, the third-ranked golfer in the world, was playing the second hole at the WGC-Cadillac Championship and hit what can only be described as the shankiest shank imaginable. To make matters worse, he was playing with Tiger Woods and Adam Scott. We can only imagine replays of this shot are being passed around the player’s locker room during today’s rain delay.

Stenson took a penalty, dropped and finished with a double-bogey on the hole.

Shanks? Man I remember a couple beauties....I remember the first time I had a legit chance to break par. I had just birdied the par 3 13th to go -1. The 14th is a long par 5, nice drive, solid layup to 80 yards......then from nowhere shank into the trees short and right of the green. Took a unplayable drop and made double to go +1. Played the last 4 in even par to finish +1.

I am sure he was unhappy, but he probably quickly thought of the $10,000,000 check he deposited in the Fall and the shank became slightly more endurable....

The hardest shot in golf is the one straight after a shank.

I watched with my own eyes as Steve Stricker shanked a 4 iron out of bounds in the final round of the U.S. Open at Merion to take himself out of contention. I consider that one worse.

He does have a habit of throwing things. Wonder if he kicked in the locker too.
