Morgan Pressel was struggling Thursday during the opening round of the Ricoh Women’s British Open. Through 13 holes, the 27-year-old was +4 on the day and in bad shape.

But on the par-5 14th hole, Pressel found magic. Pressel had 197 yards left after her tee shot. She hit a flush five-wood that was right on the money. It rolled about twenty feet and found the bottom of the cup for an albatross. The incredible shot moved Pressel to just 1-over par. She finished +2 (74) for her round, nine shots behind leader Hyo Joo Kim.

So what’s the problem? Well, Pressel wasn’t too thrilled that her albatross wasn’t on TV, or anywhere for that matter.

Here’s another exchange:

We’re pretty bummed that there’s no video anywhere of Pressel’s albatross; it would have been cool to see. A few fans on Twitter were also unhappy they couldn’t check out a replay. ESPN has coverage all week long at Royal Turnberry. Second round coverage begins at 9 a.m. on Friday, and third and final round coverage starts at 10 a.m.
