Martin Kaymer’s neck was feeling tight ahead of the second round of the 2016 men’s Olympic golf tournament, so he needed a little adjustment before teeing off Friday in Rio.
Kaymer turned to his physio-slash-chiropractor to get tuned up, and the Olympic cameras caught the adjustment that came in the form of a wrestling move. Kaymer’s physio set the German up for a WWE-style full nelson and then yanked the two-time major winner up in the air.
Immediately, the physio checked on Kaymer’s neck to make sure he’s OK.
“I hope that’s a chiropractor working on him,” Nick Faldo said on Golf Channel’s coverage of the competition.
Kaymer shot 2-under 69 in the first round to trail leader Marcus Fraser by six shots.
Just for reference, here’s the move in a WWE wrestling ring.
