Video: Oshie’s skills don’t exactly translate to putting


James OBrien

During the 2014 Winter Olympics, St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie made a strong statement that he’s the master of shootouts. He probably can’t boast the same mastery of the putting green, at least not based on this video evidence from the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship:

(Let’s be honest, this sort of thing happens all the time at miniature golf courses across the United States, although some sort of fake windmill is usually involved.)

The good news for Oshie, 27, isn’t currently ranked last in the tournament. He’s currently ahead of comedians (including “Larry the Cable Guy” and Ray Romano) and even a stray athlete or two (Jason Taylor, fellow hockey Olympian Hilary Knight). The bad news is that he’s currently ranked behind a long list of people, ranging from “Miracle on Ice” legend Mike Eruzione to Dan Quayle (!) to Joe Sakic.

Here’s Oshie’s scorecard through two rounds:

The final round airs live on NBC starting at 3 pm ET on Sunday.

As an aside, it wasn’t a bad golf-related Saturday for every active NHL player:
