The 20-year-old could have been representing Nigeria at the African Cup of Nations this month, but the Super Eagles failed to qualify, meaning Iwobi now has a bit of down-time on his hands, which has apparently been spent at the driving range.
However, it doesn’t look like much time has been spent their previously, with Iwobi’s swing possessing all the grace and accuracy of a reversing truck with no wheels on.
Some athletes could have turned pro at various sports – but not Iwobi:

Having signed a bumper new contract last year, we’re willing to bet Iwobi has enough few quid for some lessons tucked away.
To be fair, he takes the embarrassing swing in good spirits and is pictured just laughing it off.
Keep at it, Alex – you’ll get better eventually!
