VIDEO: Ian Poulter pulls off a recovery shot while on a balance beam


Sometimes you find yourself with an awkward lie on the golf course. Just ask Shooter McGavin.

In a recent Cobra-Puma Golf video, Ian Poulter "found himself" with a lie where his ball had hopped off the cart path and landed perfectly on the rail of a cart bridge over a water hazard. Instead of taking the unplayable lie for a penalty shot, Poulter shows how to execute a pitch shot while balancing on the bridge. And he pulls it off nicely.

Mere humans, don't try this one at home. Take the unplayable.
