Scottie Scheffler, the current top-ranked golfer in the world, had a solid performance on Friday at TPC River Highlands.

He shot even par with two birdies and two bogeys, which kept him in contention at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Connecticut.

After the first 36 holes, Scheffler is in the top 20 heading into the weekend. However, he had a memorable and embarrassing moment during the tournament.

Shortly after Scheffler hit a tee shot, his golf club accidentally hit him in the face.

“Who says golf isn’t a contact sport?” quipped the PGA Tour’s Twitter account.

Fortunately, Scheffler did not sustain any major injuries from the mishap.

A few days ago, Scheffler casually tossed his driver at the U.S. Open, so perhaps this incident could be seen as a stroke of karma for the 2022 Masters champion.

This incident serves as a reminder that even highly skilled golf professionals can experience embarrassing moments, just like amateur golfers.

Earlier in the day, Scheffler spent some time with U.S. men’s national team captain Tyler Adams.

Currently, after two rounds of play, Scheffler is tied for 18th place at 7-under.
