WATCH: Kid Rock shanks a chip shot at Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf

Kid Rock is an avid golfer, but no one said Kid Rock was a great golfer.

The man whose real name is Robert Ritchie showed he still has some work to do with his short game on Saturday at the PGA Tour Champions' Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf at Big Cedar Lodge in Branson, Mo.

Rock, playing alongside legends Lee Trevino and David Graham in a legend-celebrity competition at the resort's Top of the Rock par-3 course, found himself off the green and needing a chip during the round. The chip was fairly standard and wide open, with the gallery giving Ritchie plenty of room to play.

However, Kid Rock didn't hit the shot well. He downright shanked it, with the ball veering quickly to the right and directly into the cup of a spectator.

The video, as shared by PGA Tour Champions, shows the ice and some liquid flying out the cup. Fortunately, the fan whose cup was struck did not herself get hit by the ball, which then dropped to the ground. From there, Kid Rock played on.

However, don't mistake Kid Rock as a downright awful golfer. He's not. In fact, he recently made his first hole-in-one alongside Jack Nicklaus down in Florida. Kid Rock also recently played golf with President Donald Trump. So, Ritchie has been on quite a run of golf of late -- shank inclusive.
