On the ice, T.J. Oshie is capable of putting the puck exactly where he wants it to go.
On the golf course, well, that’s a different story.
The St. Louis Blues forward and former U.S. Olympic star is at Lake Tahoe this weekend competing in the American Century Championship, a celebrity golf tournament featuring the likes of Charles Barkley, Terrell Davis, Kevin Millar and Larry the Cable Guy, among others.
Oshie struggled through the first round, but on one occasion he found himself seven feet away from a birdie.
Let’s just say he didn’t get the birdie.
Oshie’s agonizing four-putt turned his birdie opportunity into a crushing double bogey, and as of Saturday morning he sat tied for 65th on the leaderboard.
The 27-year-old winger has a special ability to pick the corners on goaltenders that helped Team USA beat Russia in a shootout at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, so we’ll forgive him for his shortcomings on the green.
If Oshie’s putting struggles keep up, though, he might want to consider a Happy Gilmore-style change in clubs.
