When you are at your local golf club in the pouring wind and rain, everyone believes that when they step out onto the first tee they are capable of being the next Tiger Woods.

But sometimes those thoughts soon get eradicated when you find yourself searching for that lost ball or feeling that the elements are just simply out to get you and ask yourself: "why me?"

But fear not, even professionals get things wrong and sometimes their lucky stars are nowhere to be seen. When playing top level golf many things are required in order to succeed in elite competitions - composure, talent, skill, but luck was not on the respective sides of these players.
