VIDEO: U.S. men’s national soccer team plays No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass poorly

The U.S. men's national soccer team is in Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, but before they made the journey to South America, they stopped at various landmarks through the country to promote American soccer. One of those places was TPC Sawgrass.

Of course, any trip to Sawgrass is incomplete without taking a stab at the par-3 17th hole on the Stadium Course. Reluctantly, the fellas gave it a try. Predictably, they didn't so well.

Brad Guzan and Michael Bradley hit the green, but the rest of the team did everything else, including whiff a few times, some cold shanks and a few pond-skippers.

You guys just focus on the soccer.
