If you think the wind at Shinnecock Hills is bad, just be happy it's U.S. Open week and not Scottish Open week.

The video below is making the rounds of Twitter and shows winds at the Gullane Golf Club lifting up, overturning, and totally destroying a large hospitality tent. It looks like some special-effects, movie stuff; except, you know, it's real.

Luckily, tournaments organizers have a month to rebuild, with this year's Scottish Open scheduled from July 12-15, the week before the Open Championship at Carnoustie.
