The Mets had an eventful end to a team golf outing during Monday’s off-day in St. Louis.

The team of Mike Nickeas, Daniel Herrera and Valentino Pascucci won the scramble, edging Dillon Gee’s group, but not without drama.

Nickeas’ second shot on the 18th hole hit a tree before somehow ricocheting onto the green.

“A seven-brancher,” Terry Collins said.

Herrera then sunk a 30-foot shot for the win.

“It was amazing,” Nickeas said.
