Nick Bienz went viral on Monday for pounding a few beers before earning his first PGA Tour start. Overnight, Australian time, he pounded his opening tee shot at Detroit Golf Club – then provided a perfect reaction.

As documented by Ryan French, a.k.a. Monday Q Info on X/Twitter, Bienz shot 65 in a Rocket Mortgage Classic Monday qualifier. So nervous as he waited for all the scores to come in, Bienz downed three beers – and then was told he’d be in a five-for-four playoff.

But the liquid courage served him well as the 27-year-old Golf Galaxy employee made it through. And he looked pretty calm and collected as he teed off in the first round, piping one 263 metres down the middle. But as he walked off the tee, he looked to the sky, gave a big sigh of relief and clutched his heart. Have a look:

Well played, Nick. Even better? He birdied his second hole of the day, the par-3 11th, to move to red figures. Maybe this PGA Tour stuff isn’t so hard, eh?

OK, so then Bienz bogeyed his next two holes and wound up shooting one-over on his front nine. Still, not too shabby for his debut.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, golfers aren’t allowed to buy beers at the turn during PGA Tour events. Too bad for Nick.
