Whether you're for or against cell phones on the golf course can we all agree that having the capability to capture your friend on video as he or she is about to do something with the potential to be wildly entertaining is priceless?
Thankfully for all of us, those were the thoughts running through the head of former NHL star Teemu Selänne in a casual round recently.
Selänne got the video rolling on a friend of his who attempted a recovery shot from the water's edge.
You can probably guess what happens, but man, it sure is worth watching (warning: language may be considered NSFW):

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- The Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid takes place next week at Harbor Shores.
Harbor Shores also hosted the 2012 Senior PGA Championship, which was won by England's Roger Chapman and the 2014 edition, won by Colin Montgomerie.
It usually takes a lot of time for a course to generate notable moments in its history. That isn't the case with Harbor Shores.
This course was put on the map the day it officially opened, July 10, 2010, thanks to its designer Jack Nicklaus.
As part of the grand opening, Nicklaus was joined by Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson and Johnny Miller to play 18 holes.
When the group reached the par-5 10th hole, something unfolded that you couldn't make up.
The 10th green at Harbor Shores is one of the most undulating on the course -- which is saying something because a lot of the greens here are of the hit-and-hope variety: hit it and hope it finishes somewhere reasonably close to the hole.
On opening day, Miller found his third shot on the lower level of the green, with the pin placement up a hill in the back, middle portion of the green, 102 feet away with the kinds of twists and turns you only expect to see on a roller coaster.
At first, Miller contemplated using a wedge, arguing it was the only wat to get close to the hole. Nicklaus insisted the ball could be putted up there.
With that, Nicklaus walked down to where Miller was, dropped a golf ball, took a quick look at the hole and proceeded to do this:
So, this week when you see players struggling for a three-putt on the 10th green at Harbor Shores (which has had some adjustments since but is still a show stopper), just remember it's not as easy as Nicklaus made it look.

Over the last two years, we've seen our share of incredible trick shots here at PGA.com.
But, what Jordan Spieth did on Tuesday during a clinic at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship was pretty darned impressive.
The two-time major champion placed a marshmallow on top of his golf ball. From there, he opened the face on a wedge and proceeded to hit a half-shot. As soon as the club made contact with the ball, the marshmallow shot straight into the air.
That's where this trick-shot developed its "wow!" moment.
Spieth zigged and zagged and eventually fell down -- all the while positioning himself perfectly -- to catch the marshmallow in his mouth.

Can Jordan Spieth flip a marshmallow off a golf ball into his mouth?

It was reminiscent of this "candy" shot nearly one year ago by Brittany Lincicome (who pulled it off with more grace than Spieth, but without the swarms of fans):
