No, seriously.

HANDS UP IF you’ve seen anything like this before?

Carl Pettersson was finishing his first round at the US Open earlier today when his shot was disrupted by a wayward tee-shot from another hole.

The Swede was lining up his approach shot at the par-five 5th and had just started his backswing when a second ball rolled across the fairway and cannoned into his own.

Petterson looked completely confused — as you would be — but after order was restored and the ball returned to its rightful place, he held his nerve to make par.

What a pro.
