VIDEO: Head snaps off of would-be golf trick-shot artist’s club mid-trick


There's a reason why you should leave golf trick shots to the, for lack of a better word, professionals. And this is it.

Matt Calvin uploaded a video to YouTube of an attempt at the driving range trick where the first person juggles the ball on their club a few times before passing forward to the second person to hit downrange. The first part goes well enough, with the pass hitting the ground and bouncing up. That's why the second person tries to finish off the trick, which he does, but not without a casualty: his driver head.

The player looks on in shock as the club head flies down range with the ball.
