Warning: what you are about to see is, quite possibly, the worst putt of all time.

Playing in the second round of The PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass, first round leader Sergio Garcia missed what, under normal circumstances, would be considered a tap-in on the 15th.

The Spaniard, who had three-putted for bogey on 14, saw his birdie putt on 15 come up inches short of the hole.

Rather than mark his ball, he decided to finish up – and inexplicably missed.

Watch what happened…

Despite that misadventure, Garcia remains in the hunt for a second PLAYERS title. He followed up his opening round of 65 with a level-par 72 to lie seven-under at the halfway stage. 

England’s Lee Westwood leads the way on nine-under, a short clear of compatriot Matt Fitzpatrick.
