Welcome to Scotland, Patrick Reed.
The American’s hopes of adding the Scottish Open to The Masters title he won earlier this year were derailed somewhat when he became just the latest high-profile golfer to come unstuck in a pot bunker.
Reed was at nine-under-par and one shot off the lead at Gullane in this morning’s second round when he came a cropper at the par-3 12th.
We could describe what happened but, really, the video tells its own horrible story…

Reed repaired some of the damage done by that double-bogey with a birdie and the 14th but bogeyed the 17th and 18th to sit at six-under-par for the tournament at the halfway stage.
At the time of writing, that's five shots off the pace set by England’s Tyrrell Hatton.
Incidentally, Reed's struggles at the 12th on Friday were in marked contrast to the fortunes of his fellow American Rickie Fowler, who came within inches of acing the same hole just hours later.
