Justin Bieber got caught taking five mulligans at a golf course in LA

Justin Bieber has undergone a wild series of ups and downs over the past few years, going from a beloved teen pop star to someone known for the occasional dust-up with the law. Most recently, he was featured as the honorary guest of Comedy Central's Roast of Justin Bieber, where other celebrities playfully -- and not-so-playfully -- poked fun at the celebrity's antics over the years.

Bieber's golf swing wasn't much of a discussion point, but maybe it should have been. Earlier Monday, Bieber was spotted by TMZ taking some ugly swing at a Los Angeles, Calif., golf course. Check out the video here.

Whether you're a Belieber or not, you can sleep at night knowing you are just as good, if not better, than Justin Bieber at golf. Keep in mind that he is a millionaire celebrity who could pay for lessons from some of the world's finest golf teachers if he so pleased. Bieber has been known to play golf frequently, so why is he struggling so mightily here?

Analysis time: Look at the one-handed release after the swing (all five of them!) He may as well be Alex Rodriguez trying to hit a home run without the steroids. However, the slamming of the iron after his first swing is remarkable and shows much restraint. He could have pulled a Happy Gilmore and really tossed the thing.

All in all, it is refreshing to see that Bieber gets just as frustrated about golf as the rest of us.
