There's nothing to make you feel better like watching a pro golfer hit the ball one yard

Jason Day shows that even the best in the world aren’t immune to these crazy moments.

Updated at 20.10

WE’VE ALL BEEN there. (Well, I certainly have anyway.)

You hit a wayward tee-shot that leaves you stuck in the trees and, instead of taking your medicine and chipping out sideways, bravery takes over and you decide you’re the seventh best golfer in the world and definitely able to reach the green in two from there.

That’s precisely what happened to Jason Day at the Zurich Classic on Sunday — except, well, Day IS the seventh best golfer in the world.

And no, he wasn’t able to reach the green in two.

Instead he watched as his shot cannoned into a tree and back towards him, coming to a rest about one yard away from where he had started.

That said, he still recovered to make a bogey six which is more than can be said for most of the rest of us.
