But this wasn’t your traditional pro-am hole with a dozen or so spectators littered around the hole. This was the 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale.

Thankfully, he made up for it slightly with his second bite at the cherry.

It’s hard to feel too sorry for Mark Wahlberg, though, as he’ll be teeing it up in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am next week.
