Ed Sheeran & Justin Bibier golf trick shot fail
On drunken night in Japan
Words: James Greenwood
In an interview with The Guardian Ed Sheeran has revealed that Justin Bibier once challenged him to hit a golf ball off his mouth on a drunken evening in Japan.
“We’d been out to a dive bar. He just drank water and I got hammered,” Sheeran explained.
“Then we went to a golf course, and he lay on the floor and put a golf ball in his mouth and told me to hit it out of his mouth. I was like, ‘F—, I need to aim this properly,’ and I swung.”
The trick shot did not go quite as planned.
"And you know in films when someone gets punched, and you hear that fake sound, like a slap? But in real life when someone gets punched, you hear that dull thud, a bit sickening? I heard a sound like the last one, and saw his security guard looking at me like” – he pulls a horrified expression.
“I’d cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club. That was,” he concludes, “one of those ‘What the fuck?’ moments.”
