They say that one of the keys to playing links golf is avoiding the plethora of bunkers which are invariably in play, and that was certainly the case for Justin Harding during Thursday’s opening round at The Open.
The 33-year-old’s tee shot on the par-4 fifth hole found a fairway bunker, and while trying to escape from the sand from an awkward lie, Harding lost his footing, which resulted in his ball staying in the sand while he took an embarrassing tumble and in a hapless fashion did his best to avoid his body making contact with the ball.

To Harding’s credit, the South African laughed off the moment and went on to record a bogey on the hole.
