WATCH: Former U.S. Amateur winner nearly hits himself in bunker

Former U.S. Amateur champion and Masters participant Steven Fox recently filmed himself trying to get out of a bunker at Sweetens Cove Golf Club in Tennessee, and it did not go well.

Fox hit his bunker shot too low and almost got hit in the face by the ricochet. 

"I really thought my bunker game was better than this..." he joked on Instagram. 

Fox has been playing on the APT Tour after not retaining his Web.com Tour card last season. He recently won the Southwest Louisiana Open in a playoff over Kyle Jones and took home a tidy $23,000 first prize. 

What an awesome week in Louisiana! Thanks to everyone for the texts and calls, means a lot!
