Olympic snowboarder Torah Bright found herself profusely apologising to a cameraman after her stray tee shot struck him on the leg.
Bright, who was taking part in a charity event at the Australian Open, seems to be more use on snow than on grass, and she proved that when she sliced her tee shot right into the shin of the nearby cameraman.
The 2010 gold medallist was just one of many recognised celebrities taking part in the Tag Heuer Hole in One Challenge at Royal Sydney Golf Club.

Despite showing plenty of composure prior to her swing of the golf club, the 29-year-old managed to steer her ball off the tee towards the legs of a cameraman standing just a few meters away.
Luckily, the cameraman was unhurt by Bright’ woeful swing, and like the Olympian, found the funny side to the ordeal.
After being struck, he somehow managed to remain on his feet and was quickly aided to with an ice bag coming to the rescue in the hope of reducing any likely swelling.
The snowboarder was quick to apologise and received the help of fellow celeb Kerri-Anne Kennerley to ice the gentleman’s leg.
A commentator from 7Golf also saw the funny side of the incident, and amusingly said: "If you were going to be hit by somebody, that's who I'd like to be hit by."
You can see the footage below.
Of course, it's never nice to be hit by a golf ball, but the commentator does have a point.
The cameraman must be slightly relieved it was Bright standing on the tee and not Rory McIlroy or any other professional player.
Stick to the snow, Torah.
