Terrible Shot Nearly Results In An Ace

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 old adage, “it’s better to be lucky than good” strikes again.

The fact that cameraman started rolling with this guy up to hit had to be some kind of premonition because based on that swing, there’s no reason to expect anything good was going to happen, but it did! That’s golf. 

While luck is most certainly a part of the game, it’s only right that this poor swing resulted in (likely) a birdie as opposed to an ace. However, when you’re telling the story of how you hit your hole-in-one, no one really cares how it happened…

…that is, of course, unless you bladed it into a giant rock just in front of the tee, it bounced up and rolled into the hole like a putt.
