Damn robots.

First they take our jobs, then they start driving our cars - and now they're coming after our sports.

A golfing robot owned by US golf commentator Gary McCord was taking its fifth swing on TPC Scottsdale's 16th hole, when this happened...

The robot, named Eldrick after Eldrick Tont "Tiger" Woods, managed to replicate the shot holed by its namesake some 19 years earlier from the same tee - hence the crowd's jubilant, beer-soaked celebration.
