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.
Normal golf is hard enough as it is, but add the element of movement and we’d all look like fools.
The intrepid golfer in the video above found himself in a very unfortunate situation, albeit one that can occur given the rough that surrounds the deep bunker the player ultimately ended up lying in. With no other alternative to play the shot from the right-handed side of the ball, the golfer steadied himself and readied his swing only to lose a battle with gravity.
His swipe as he slid past the ball was futile. After all, who expects to ever find themselves in a predicament like that.
Of course, this whole thing could have been avoided by flipping the club over and trying to extricate it lefty, but hindsight is always 20/20.
