Golfer Face-Plants in Bunker


Golf is a social sport, and we think it’s fun to share golf experiences; the good, the bad, and the ugly. Partnering with our friends at gottaGolf (The Ball Tracer & Social Golf App), SxS is proud to bring you “Golf Fails brought to you by gottaGolf,” a weekly reminder that golf is… really hard.

Golf is supposed to be a fun respite from the ridiculousness that goes on in the real-world. However, some of that ridiculousness sometimes makes its way onto the course as evidenced by the video above.

The golfer in question seems to have a pretty solid background in flips, whether that be some gymnastics, parkour or diving experience, but when going over the lip of a bunker, it’s easy to lose track of where the ground is. Our hero does just this and overextends his landing, resulting in an embarrassing trick caught on camera and a mouthful of sand. 

Thankfully, the flipper wasn’t seriously injured and the only thing hurt was his pride, which gives you the official go-ahead to laugh out loud and share with your friends.
