VIDEO: Dustin Johnson hits ball to cameraman on command for promo shoot


Dustin Johnson is good. Really good. And, like most pros, Johnson can find a line and hit it to a pretty specific target.

But how about this shot?

During a TaylorMade-adidas Golf commercial shoot at Mountain Gate Country Club in Los Angeles, one of the production crew asked Johnson to hit a shot to a ground-level cameraman located just behind the fringe. So, what does Johnson do? He hits it to within a foot of the cameraman, it bounces in front of the lens and spins back to safety.

Just remember this the next time you hit a good shot and don't think there's a big gap between us and the pros. That gap is bigger than the Grand Canyon.
