VIDEO: This is what it’s like when lightning strikes a golf course


SHARE THIS STORY

Every once in a while, we share with you amazing images of the after-effects from when lightning strikes a golf course.

However, it's not too often that you get to see the lightning strike itself. Thanks to a curious shooter with some great timing, we get a golf-course lightning strike video at the home of the LPGA.




Bjarni Antonsson shot this video of a lightning strike at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Fla. The footage was uploaded Friday, a day after strong storms rolled through the area. Fortunately, no one was hurt in the strike, although Antonsson told the Daytona Beach News-Journal that a cart passed by just before the electrical touchdown.
