That being said, sometimes people aren’t as precise in their execution, like in the case of this dude:
There were several outstanding issues with this attempt, but what doomed the shot from the start was that the ball appeared to be on the ground and not the tee. That creates more of an opportunity for the golfer to hit dirt and set shit on fire, which he does.
(Also: He’s swinging in sandals. It’s time for a gear upgrade.)
Luckily for the gentleman in this clip, he decided to attempt this shot surrounded by water so he didn’t have to endure the fire for very long. Hopefully, he made it out unscathed.
