When the game is on the line, T.J. Oshie certainly knows how to make winning look easy

On the green, however, the St. Louis Blues forward looked anything but elegant.

While in Lake Tahoe this weekend for the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, Oshie's first-round struggles were highlighted by an agonizing four-putt from seven feet away. It was almost painful to watch as he turned an opportunity for a birdie into a double bogey.

Watch the video below:

You most likely remember Oshie for his heroics at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, where helped the United States stun host Russia by scoring four goals in six attempts in a thrilling eight-round shootout.

But as of Saturday morning, he sits tied for 65th on the leaderboard in Lake Tahoe.

Don't worry, Oshie. You'll always have Sochi.
