Professional golfer Ernie Els, who’s won four major championships in his career and was once ranked the No. 1 golfer in the world, had a disastrous first hole during Thursday’s opening round of the Masters.

It took Els six strokes to sink a two-foot putt. After the round he had this to say to CBS’s Chip Patterson, according to the Bleacher Report:

“I don’t know how I stayed out there. I can’t explain it. It’s something that I’m sure up there somewhere [in your brain] that you just can’t do what you normally do. It’s unexplainable. A lot of people have stopped playing the game, you know. It’s unexplainable. I couldn’t get the putter back. I was standing there, I’ve got a 3-footer, I’ve made thousands of 3-footers and I just couldn’t take it back.

“And then I just kind of lost count after … I mean, the whole day was a grind. I tried to fight. I’m hitting the ball half-decent, and I can’t make it from two feet.”
