Quick question: Would you let someone -- anyone -- hit a golf ball, sitting on a tee that was lodged into your teeth instead of the ground?
For me, the answer is quite simple... it's a resounding no. I don't care if it was Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods in his prime, whatever. Nobody is putting a tee in my mouth and taking a lash with a driver to hit the ball off it.
Fortunately for people like me, not everyone feels the same way. And that leads to videos that pop up on the internet. Like this one, where a father trusted his roughly, what, 2-year-old, to pull off such a shot?
What could go wrong?
OK, so it wasn't all that bad. At least the kid was using plastic clubs.
It reminded me of this scene from the show "Feherty" where David Feherty, much to the chagrin of his camera crew, allowed no less than John Daly to smash one off a tee placed in Feherty's mouth.
If Daly had done what the little kid did, the results could have been devastating.
So, please, heed this public service announcement, folks -- don't ever let a person hit a golf ball out of your mouth.
