Amateur Snaps Golf Club by Hitting a Tree


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 clubs are expensive and there’s a reason only professional golfers take on these high-risk shots up against trees. Not only are the pros playing for big money where every shot could mean the difference between thousands of dollars, they also have the wherewithal and the connections to have things go badly and it won’t affect their marital status.

As for the golfer in the video above, there were a few dead giveaways that this guy isn’t teeing it up with the pros anytime soon. However, the clean nature in which his club snapped upon impact was something to see in slow motion. Something we wouldn’t want to see in slow motion is him explaining to his significant other why he had to drop a nice chunk of change at the golf shop to have his club fixed all for the sake of a funny video.
