SWXRightNow.com -- Sometimes even the No. 1 player in the world can make a pretty funny gaff on the golf course, it just so happens Rory McIlroy did just that at THE PLAYERS Championship on Saturday. 

Sitting in the rough just outside of the green on the 9th hole, McIlroy takes a beautiful cut on his ball sitting with a nice lie in such deep grass, and he missed. 

Watch McIlroy's whiff in the video below, scrub past the 50 second mark to see the replay of McIlroy's miss.

To be fair to arguably the best golfer in the world, McIlroy did recover with about as good of a shot as he could of without sinking it, it just took him an extra stroke. 

But it is still nice to see a pro become human on national television. Especially when so many of us spend our weekends on local golf courses wishing we could crush the ball like he can, or if you're like me, hoping you can just get out of the trap in one shot.

At the end of day three McIlroy sits six-under and tied for 17th with the rest of the field. Chris Kirk sits atop the leaderboard with a -10 through 54 holes.
