J.R. Smith and the rest of the New York Knicks may have had a down year, but at least he's putting in the work this offseason to get better ... at golf.

A quick look at Smith's recent Instagram activity reveals that he's been following the PGA Tour the last couple of week's from the Wells Fargo Championship to The Players, and managing to get in some rounds as well. 

Here he is playing the TPC Sawgrass' famed 17th island green. He says he made a par but was #pissed when he bogeyed 18.

He also had a #GreatDay hanging out with Rory McIlroy.
