Ah, the power of Instagram video. It's amazing what you can pretend to do with it.
Take this video from Texas Rangers pitcher Derek Holland for instance. Holland, playing the par-4, 440-yard fifth hole at Cottonwood Valley in Dallas, slightly exaggerates his power on the course in this video.
At least Holland fesses up at the end of the video that he didn't actually hit it that far.
If there were a baseball player to actually drive a ball as far as Bubba Watson, Holland seems like a pretty good candidate. He didn't make his season debut until September after suffering a knee injury after tripping over his dog last winter, so he had plenty of time to work on his golf swing (because isn't that what all baseball players do when they're hurt?). Plus, his swing looks pretty good and he was posting from the golf course yesterday.
Alas, this looks like it will go down as another classic Holland prank.
