Many of the Royals players used Monday's off day to hit the links as part of the team's celebrity golf tournament, which was a benefit for the Special Olympics.
Royals second baseman Whit Merrifield took part in the fun. Merrifield, who is on a modest five-game hitting streak in which he has batted .318 with three home runs, had a little trouble teeing up one ball.
Merrifield tried his hand at a trick shot at the Shadow Glen Golf Club in Olathe, and it didn't go so well.
I'm not sure if the Bryan Brothers, who are trick-shot artists, were on hand, but Merrifield gave them a shout-out when he posted a video of his failed attempt at the shot.
Take a look:
Not sure what's funnier: the first miss or the club head flying off on the second swing.
Whatever the case, Merrifield is obviously a good sport because he posted the video on his Instagram account.
