Piers Morgan came an almighty cropper during the second round of this week’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship – slicing his drive on the 17th at St Andrews’ Old Course into the hotel grounds.
The controversial TV presenter has become a regular fixture in the tournament in recent times.
However, it appears he still hasn’t figured out how to master the iconic ‘Road’ hole on golf’s most famous course.
Playing alongside Scottish tour pro Connor Syme, Morgan pegs up his ball and, after a surprisingly short backswing, he sent his ball spinning into the famous hotel and out of bounds to groans from spectators and TV commentators alike.
The 56-year-old, who claims to play off 16, then called for a provisional, saying “the public wants another one”.
Have a look…

This isn’t the first time the former Good Morning Britain presenter has been embarrassed by the Old Course.
Back in 2018, this happened…

By the sounds of things, though, he got his round at Carnoustie on Saturday off to a far better start…
