When it comes to sports, getting in contact with playing instruments while being on the field is the most common thing. However comparing other sports to golf, the chances of getting hit by the ball or the club are always low, but not zero. Current World No.1 Scottie Scheffler learned this the hard way after he got smacked by his own club during the Travelers championship.

This incident was recorded on Friday when the top-ranked golfer tried to tee off at the fourth hole. He connected his shot well and decided to let go of his club. Unfortunately for him, this proved dangerous. The club bounced off his hand and connected with his face, leaving the golfer stunned momentarily. This action caught him off-guard.

A moment captured in slow motion shows the golfer getting stunned by the hit. It could have hurt him more than it originally looked. As soon as the video went viral, fans reminded him of his previous actions and labeled it “karma“. A few days back he was spotted throwing his club while testing out a new one at a range. Luckily the hit was not too serious and he left uninjured from the scene.

While the Travelers Championship may not be as prestigious as some other tours, it still provides the chance to snatch some wins. Currently ranked top of the Official World Golf Rankings (OWGR) Scottie Scheffler, started off well on Thursday but had a disappointing afternoon the following day.

The 2022 Masters winner shot an even-par 70 on Friday. Going into Saturday, he is eight strokes behind leaders Keegan Bradley and Denny McCarthy. A comeback from this position seems unlikely. He will perhaps need a miracle, to not only close the gap quickly but for others to have an off-day if he wants to even finish in the top five or top ten positions.

Scheffler who finished third in the recent US Open, would have hoped for a much better performance. He is now tied for 21st as the tournament heads into the weekend. His last professional win came at the Players Championships in March. Since then he has come close on some occasions but has failed to bag the top prize.

While Scheffler might had a bad day, some big names had a much poor outing than him. Former world number one Jon Rahm and Collin Morikawa were among some elite names who missed the cut at the championship. The tournament will conclude on June 25 as two more exciting days of golf awaits the fans.
