Phil Mickleson's shot took a strange trajectory

The 17th at St Andrews is difficult at the best of times but trying to take your second shot from a hotel balcony... things can get hairy.

Phil Mickleson was six under for his round and the tournament when he stood up at the 17th tee but that's where things started to unravel.

The American could only look on helplessly as his ball veered right and onto the Old Course Hotel.

It appeared to come to a rest on a first floor balcony.

He had to settled for a triple bogey and a round of 69.
