This is so bad it's good.
Washington Capitols superstar Alex Ovechkin whiffed TWICE while trying to tee off Thursday ... shocking, considering the guy swings a hockey stick for a living.
But you gotta watch the entire clip ... Alex eventually focuses and connects with a pretty solid shot -- and celebrates like he just won the Stanley Cup!
It's better than Charles Barkley ... but it's close.
