Golfer takes out water–skier
But is it for real???
There is some debate on line as to whether or not this supposed ‘trick shot’ is real or not. Check it out and make up your own mind.
One responder to the post, @flyest_byrd, got really technical on our arse in explaining how the shot could actually be real.
"Tiger woods can hit a ball off a tee with a driver at 120 mph meaning that his ball travels 176 feet per second now the time in between the hit and when the guy falls is let's say 3 even as low as two seconds. In two second tigers ball is roughly 350 feet going at an arch. So if the ball is hit parallel to the ground that's roughly 360-360 feet in two seconds and that is more than enough time to hit the guy so yes it's very, very possible to pull this off. Did it actually, who knows but scientifically it CAN easily happen."
Run that past me again!
Either way, it’s not something we are recommending. Water skiing and golf should never mix.
