This isn't your typical awkward stance. If you slip, or swing off-balance from here, you don't fall on your butt or get wet. No, you tumble down a cliff and risk some serious injury.
Some buddies were playing a course in, presumably, Bolivia, when one of the players' errant shots rolls off the green and apparently lands inches away from falling off the ledge. Rather than take a penalty stroke, the player decides to take his chances and pull off the recovery shot.
Typically, this guy probably takes a half-second over the ball to hit the pitch shot. But probably knowing what could happen if he wasn't fully engaged on the shot, he took several extra seconds before pulling the trigger.
We're pretty sure we'd just take the drop.
