It’s Been A Great Couple Of Days For Crazy Golf Trick Shots
There’s nothing like sitting down to watch a round of golf and letting a group of PGA players remind you just how terrible you are at the sport. There’s nothing like watching someone come within three feet of the hole on the 17th at TPC Sawgrass to make you feel bad about all the time and effort you’ve put into your game over the course of your life, knowing you’ll never come close to the level of even the worst pros on the Tour.
However, sometimes it’s easy to forget just how good some of these guys are at virtually every aspect of the game. If you need any proof, you don’t have to look any further than some of the crazy trick shots that have been posted online over the past couple of days.
Bubba Watson kicked off the action when he challenged Wesley Bryan to a trick shot challenge by nailing a long putt with a simple flick of the wrist that probably took God knows how many tries to actually sink.
Wesley was more than happy to respond and pulled out a wedge before doing his best Tiger Woods impression and holing an absolutely effortless no-look shot complete with a flawless club spin.
The other Bryan brother, George, also decided to get in on the action by harnessing a couple of concrete tiles and an impressive chip.
Watson did what he could to save face by tapping in a between the legs shot, but it’s clear the Bryant brothers earned the W.
However, I’d argue these shots have nothing on the one Jeff Overton nailed last night.
Overton took part in a challenge during halftime of Indiana’s game against Duke on Wednesday in which he had the chance to make a 94-foot shot across the length of the basketball court in order to win a fan a trip for four to Myrtle Beach. To say he made it look easy is an understatement.
Nothing but cup.
