Watch a tour pro take a painful blow below the belt

October 25, 2015

OK, this one looks like it hurt. A LOT.

Sunshine Tour pro Jacques Kruyswijk attempted to play a recovery shot from behind a tree during the first round of the Vodacom Origins of Golf. Instead, he wound up taking a brutal blow below the belt. Guys, if you're sensitive about watching this stuff, now's your time to turn away:

Kruyswijk made a triple bogey on the hole, but impressively, the South African was able to complete his round of 69 by making five more birdies. He finished T-18 for the week -- and with a blooper that will follow him around for the rest of his career.
