WATCH: You won’t believe how long this European Tour pro stands over the ball

Sam Horsfield

Remember when Sergio had a case of the waggles? This is different, but every bit as cringeworthy.

Meet Sam Horsfield, a 22-year-old Englishman who played college golf at the University of Florida and is nearing the end of his first full season on the European Tour. As he stood over a tee shot at the Turkish Airlines Open, he was captured and posted to Instagram by What you’re about to witness are 25 seconds of absolute agony. That’s not the time spent in the pre-shot routine — that’s how long he spent over the ball. Some slight twitches. Several regrips. Everything but smoke spewing out of the poor guy’s ears.

Settle in and see for yourself.

Sam Horsfield takes more than DOUBLE the amount of time over the golf ball than a Paul Pogba penalty ? name something you could do in 25 seconds…
