Adam Scott played Muirfield and had to hit a bunker shot left-handed

The British Open is a week away, and that means the world's best are taking to Muirfield to get in a practice round or two before next Thursday.

Justin Rose and Adam Scott were a couple of the pros that got in a practice round this week, and if there is one reminder on what links golf brings, it's this picture of our 2013 Masters champion.

Scott was forced to go lefty out of one of the pot bunkers, and maybe it's my bad eyes, but it looks like the ball never came out.

Still, if you ever wonder how pros pull off some of the most ridiculous shots when they get into trouble, it's because they practice them before the tournaments begin. If Scott is in a bunker next week and has to turn the club over, remember this picture.
