golf, heckling
YouTube / hot dailymail news
A golfer thought it would be funny to document his buddy's bunker troubles, but his heckling was met with a golf ball to the face.

Anyone who doesn't believe in the "golf gods" need only to ask Phil Mickelson.

It always seems that the ball rolls just so, or bounces just right, as to even out the universe. Well in this case the golf gods came for a little payback, when one golfer pulled out his phone to observe the bunker woes of his golfing buddy.

"You're so bad," we hear him say, as his friend sets up for his shot. Next thing he knows, the ball is flying towards him at full speed. Ouch.

Never mess with the golf gods.

jason day, left-handed driver
Instagram / Lutterus
World No. 1 Jason Day tried out a left-handed driver at the practice range Friday, and the results were even better than you'd expect.

Jason Day is the No. 1 player in the world. He's also right-handed.

But how good could he really be left-handed? Surely he would struggle to hit a driver while facing the opposite way, right?

Well it turns out, the answer is no. Not only did he not struggle, but he can pipe it 285. And thanks to former PGA Tour player David Lutterus, we have video evidence. Could he make the PGA Tour left-handed? I wouldn't bet against it.

I can't tell whether I should be impressed, or feel bad about how poorly my driver game is in comparison. Either way it's worth a watch.

Even a player of Darren Clarke's caliber can struggle with a flop shot every now and again.

A flop shot from a tight lie is one of the most difficult shots in golf to pull off.

If you execute it, you look like a magician.

If you don't, you look like former Open Champion and 2016 European Ryder Cup Captain Darren Clarke did in Dubai on Thursday during the first round of the Dubai Desert Classic.

Playing the 14th hole, a 434-yard par 4, Clarke faced a third shot from a tight spot in the fairway that needed to travel over a bunker and stop pretty quickly to finish anywhere close to the hole.

Here's what happened...

Ouch. But, we've all been there, haven't we?

Clarke would bogey the hole, which means he got up and down from the bunker.
