Mark Wahlberg

For an amateur, a pro-am can be a pretty unnerving experience. Just ask Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg.

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.

Watch the action below (Head to 6.00 to get the tee shot).

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.
