VIDEO: Man tops golf ball, hits himself in the back of the head

Tiger Woods may have shot 82 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, but at least he didn't hit himself in the head with the golf ball like this guy.

This golfer tops the ball forward an inch or two and into the ground with enough spin that the ball flies up in the air, then, as the golfer is looking for where the ball went, the ball hits him on the back of the head. The next shot is better, but the videographer can't stop laughing about the previous shot.

Now, hitting yourself on the back of your head isn't quite as awful as hitting yourself in the face, like another guy did on the driving range. But, it's still pretty bad -- especially because of the penalty for hitting yourself with the ball.
