Over the weekend, Tigers ace Justin Verlander decided to take in a round of golf at the Kinloch Golf Club in his native Virginia. During the outing, Verlander had a pretty amazing errant shot that ended up landing on top of a tree stump in what looks to be a pretty unforgiving rough.
Verlander also tweeted an image of his unfortunate situation.

But despite his predicament and being perhaps the best pitcher on the planet, Verlander is getting zero sympathy from famed Happy Gilmore antagonist Shooter McGavin who reminds him (Verlander) of his much more difficult lie 16 years earlier.
@JustinVerlander Sorry about your lie but you have to play the ball as it lies. I had to play a ball off Frankensteins fat foot 16 years ago

No word on what exactly Verlander did to get himself off the stump or how he finished his day. You really gotta love the internet though.
