Fail Friday: Hero Shot Goes Terribly Wrong


A post shared by World Links Golf (@worldlinksgolf) on

When you go to a lot of sporting events, you’re warned to keep an eye out for objects flying into the stands or leaving the field of play. In golf, there seems to be even more risk when sharing the course with other amateur golfers. The amount of times “FORE!” is yelled on a weekend at a local municipal course deserves its own study.

One time you don’t feel endangered, however, is when one of your partners is hitting a chip shot. Granted, this shot wasn’t your typical chip. Our hero was trying to recreate the famous Miguel Angel Jimenez at St. Andrews Road Hole ricochet shot. 

Having the wherewithal to get someone to take a video of this hero shot gets a tip of our hat. The world is a better place because of it. 

Here’s the original.
