Open Championship-inspired trick shots
Series: Golf Buzz

The golf trick-shot duo known as the Bryan Brothers have just released a special Open Championship edition video complete with persimmon woods, hickory shafts, plus-four knickers, button-down shirts, neck ties, flat caps and bagpipes playing in the background.
Old Tom Morris would be proud.
In the latest effort, the Bryan Brothers dedicate shots to the likes of Old Tom, Walter Hagen and Harry Vardon.

If you've been on PGA.com at all the past few months, you've probably noticed several of these Bryan Brothers videos. While all of them are impressive, I'm going to go out on a limb and say this Open Championship video might feature two of their best shots yet:
1. The shot out of the sand that -- in mid-air -- gets pummeled with a driver.
2. The Bryan Brothers version of the "bump-and-run" -- the timing on that had to be impeccable. Making contact would have been impressive, but getting the ball airborne was insane.
Cheers, lads. Well done.
