Canadian hits golf ball into his own pocket, lands on Letterman


There are plenty of great golf trick-shot videos out there. Just scour YouTube for them. They're fun. But here's one you probably haven't seen already, and it landed the golfer a booking on "The Late Show with David Letterman."

Mickey Wur is from Manitoba, Canada, and has a pretty cool trick shot: He can hit a flop shot straight up in the air and catch the golf ball in his pocket.

Wur did the trick again for CBC a few days ago, just before he was scheduled to arrive in New York to do Letterman's Stupid Human Tricks segment. Unfortunately, that appearance was postponed for some reason, but here's a chance to see it twice.
