WATCH: Neymar may be a pro baller, but he’s a hacker on the golf course

Driver off the deck

Golf can humble the greatest of men – and even professionals from other sports can have a nightmare on the course.

It looks like Neymar Junior is enjoying his time in this video clip, but the greenskeepers might not be too happy to see him.

His left-handed swing isn’t a Phil Mickelson clone for sure.

We aren’t sure if the turf or his own ankles are in greater danger.

However, we can confirm that no golf balls were harmed during the making of this film.

It isn’t clear that Neymar is actually left-handed considering his left is his weaker foot.

Do you try to apply a band-aid solution mid-round and hope the issue goes away, or do you visit the practice tee after the round and address the underlying cause of your driver shots curving uncontrollably or when your iron contact is poor?

While it is sensible to want to end your ball-striking problems quickly so you can enjoy the day, the solutions you select frequently make the situation worse in the long term. Remove those manipulations from your swing and replace them with some quality tweaks rather than trying to survive another round with some improvised alterations.

A good rule of thumb is to simplify everything as much as possible and to work towards crafting a swing that works for you, no matter what it looks like.
