The Internet is a strange and scary place, especially when you seek out the strange and scary as we did in the spirit of celebrating Friday the 13th.
While there is undoubtedly untold amounts of truly vile and twisted material floating around, we were looking for something that would truly scare us; things that make us cower and look away from our computer, tablet or smartphone; things that give us the goosebumps and make us shudder in our seat.
What we found after making the deep dive into the Internet wormhole was truly off-putting, but that’s what these days are all about, right?
Here, now, are 10 truly scary golf swings; swings so bad that we physically and verbally responded to seeing them.
Scroll on down, if you dare.
No. 10 – The GOAT
Any scary swing list worth its salt needs to enlist Sir Charles. But by this point, Barkley’s swing is like the Scream mask: it was terrifying at first, but now it’s just… there. Thanks for the initiation, Chuck, but we’ve got it from here.
No. 9 – The Tunneler
While it’s a useful shot to have in the bag, there’s no need to hit the low ball every time and squat after it like El Chapo heading through one of his tunnels.
No. 8 – The Robot
This guy is hitting balls in a field next to a highway. Why would you ever bring this out into public? The GIF was not paused at any point, by that way. That’s all tin man, here.
No. 7 – The Slap Shot
Look, it’s great that Happy Gilmore got some hockey players to pick up golf, but acquaint yourself with some fundamentals before heading to the range. Now, let’s channel our favorite heckler from the movie and say it together, “Hah! The tee went further than the ball!”
No. 6 – Low and Slow
This guy takes the “low and slow” backswing way too far. And then, to top it all off, he does a leg kick on the way through.
