Not long ago, the Discovery Channel show "Mythbusters" disproved the adage that "trees are 90 percent air." On average, they showed only a quarter of golf balls hit at a tree make it through unscathed.
But on Sunday at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa, Dawie van der Walt did that experiment one better. He used a tree to pull off an amazing "hidden ball trick."
If you remember, Sergio Garcia did that one better in the 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational, going up into a tree to hit his ball, which had lodged in the branches.
Still, all myth-busting aside, it's impressive to think the branches of a tree seem to be the perfect place to capture a well-struck golf ball falling from the sky.
