The world golf focus might be with the Presidents Cup in South Korea, but there’s another big event happening in the golf world with the British Masters. One sure-fire way to grab the attention from the Presidents Cup is to televise a brutal shank.

The victim? Ian Poulter. While playing the 415-yard par-4 fifth hole at Woburn Golf Club, Poulter’s approach from the rough was a brutal, unapologetic shank. The 39-year-old couldn’t even keep his right hand on the club, quickly stunned at his own errant shot.

The video catches the shank quite well, and even shows Poulter beginning to grin after watching where his ball ended up. Poulter would finish the hole with a double bogey, but add a birdie on the seventh to ease the sting.
