Bryan brothers up the ante on trick-shot teamwork
Man, the trick shots just keep getting, well, trickier.
Just the other day, we were amazed at that two-guys-hit-the-same-ball shot video. In fact, we're still a little amazed by that one.
But Wednesday night, Rickie Fowler tweeted out a link to a trick shot video by brothers George Bryan IV and Wesley Bryan that, to me, is in an entirely different league. In fact, there are two videos – the first one is a bit of an appetizer while the second one is a full meal. But watch 'em both – they're definitely worth the minute or two they'll take.
I'm not even going to try to describe the shots except to say that they require teamwork at its best, so it's no surprise to learn that the brothers have been immersed in golf since childhood. They were essentially raised at the Chapin, S.C., golf academy run by their father, PGA Professional George Bryan III. They started taking lessons from prominent PGA instructor Mike Bender at about the time they began elementary school, and both went on to star at the University of South Carolina.
And just as I was writing this, I noticed that the Bryan brothers' acrobatics have attracted the attention of Lindsay Ann Aho and Lauren Sullivan, who are in the current season of "The Big Break" and appear to be challenging the brothers to a trick-shot contest. Sounds like the competition will get serious next week, so we'll keep an eye out for that.
In the meantime, check out these two videos:
