Cameraman Gets Taken Out by Recovery Shot


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.


The advent of cell phone cameras has been a blessing and a curse. Sure, it makes it easier to film your swing and improve your game, but the flipside is that the opporunity to have your worst moments on the course (and everywhere else) filmed and diseminated for all to see.

The above video is a perfect example of karma. The player is obviously in a tricky spot with tree trouble and a discerning albeit opportunistic friend has decided this is a great time to get some laughs from the guys in the clubhouse when the ball inevitably richochets backwards, or — even better — hits the guy playing the shot.

Justice came to the golf course on this day, however, and the shot comes flying at the lens so quickly it makes you retreat away from your screen out of impact like you’re at a baseball game behind the protective net when a foul ball comes whizzing back.

Moral of the story: keep filming your friends making fools out of themselves on the golf course, just make sure you’re out of harm’s way when you do it.
