Coco Gauff is the newly-crowned US Open women’s champion, but her dominance evidently does not extend to all other sports.

The 19-year-old enjoyed some time this week at a driving range, and struggled to even hit the ball off of the tee.

In a hilarious video posted to her Instagram story, the world no. 3 can be seen completely whiffing twice before softly popping the ball up in front of her.

Gauff saw the humor in the moment as well, captioning the clip, ‘Gauff but can’t golf.’

Of course, Gauff is much better at her day job as she beat Aryna Sabalenka in three sets to capture her first Grand Slam.

Gauff captured a $3million payday for winning the title in New York, bringing her season earnings to $5.5million and her career prize money to $11.1million.  

She also has a growing list of endorsement deals, including Barilla, UPS and Baker Tilly accounting.

Whether it was her maroon New Balance outfit, Bose headphones, or Head racket, Gauff’s sponsors all shared the spotlight with the rising superstar during the tournament.
