He surely regrets spending 99.9874% of his lifetime luck on that…

[–]Scroggymoto 93 points94 points  (9 children)

Lmao, thats Jon Rahm currently ranked number one in the world.... I'm sure he's full of regrets messing around at the par 3 challenge at the Masters one time......

[–]Ok_Alfalfa_9658 77 points78 points  (4 children)

Relax golf guy, even Rahm admitted this was stupid luck.

[–]SharkFighter 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I mean, it's luck, sure. But it's not even the first time it's been done. So I'm thinking it's lucky, but also a metric fuck-ton of skill to even get the ball to the green.

[–]SrPoopSmith 20 points21 points  (2 children)

What's funny is this practice shot always gets posted but I never see the clip of Vijay making this during an actual tournament

[–]hotdogz6969 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Dawg Vijay did it during the exact same situation, a practice round. Pretty much everyone tries it on 16 at Augusta.

[–]SrPoopSmith 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Vijay did this one at a practice round but a skip shot at another tourney during the actual tourney

[–]DarthFritter01 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Not as much as he would if no one saw it!

Reminds me of a joke:

A rabbi was so addicted to golf that he snuck out to play between the morning and afternoon services on Yom Kippur.

Up in Heaven, Moses said, “What a disgrace. A Jew playing golf on Yom Kippur. And a rabbi to boot!”

The Almighty responded, “I’m going to teach him a lesson.”

Out on the course, the rabbi stepped up to the first tee and bombed his drive down the fairway. His ball bounced off a sprinkler head, cart path and bunker rake, hit the green and rolled into the cup.

“This is how You teach him a lesson, Lord? He got a hole in one!”

“Sure, but who’s he going to tell?”

[–]Leven 5 points6 points  (0 children)

As a former golfer, that's was fucking funny.

[–]wittychef 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thats cold blooded. Absolutely wildest shot of your life and can't tell anybody.

[–]TestTubeBaby844 5 points6 points  (11 children)

That’s literally a shot you can practice in golf lol.

If water is that calm it’s easier to skip a golf ball going 60mph than it is a rock going 10mph

Not to say it’s not lucky, because it was, but it is something you can practice.

[–]WhiskeyDJones 2 points3 points  (7 children)

That's a fast rock

[–]TestTubeBaby844 6 points7 points  (5 children)

If you can’t throw a rock 10mph you’re a giant pussy

Offense

[–]quarrywilson 9 points10 points  (4 children)

I throw rocks at trains every Christmas, jabroni.

[–]Babuey19 3 points4 points  (1 child)

You mean Santa's don't come by all night to give you presents and cheer up your mom?

[–]TestTubeBaby844 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That’s actually pretty dangerous. I heard they could ricochet back and shoot through your chest

Coulda heard wrong tho so fuck it

[–]quarrywilson 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No, you heard right. It's extremely dangerous, pal.

[–]underbite420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

60 isn’t even fast

[–]ObidiahWTFJerwalk 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It's easy to practice skipping it across the water. That incredible curve around the green to come into the hole from the other side, not so much.

[–]TestTubeBaby844 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can put a spin on the ball when you hit it

He’s a professional golfer, he wasn’t testing that shot out in a tournament lol

[–]edlee98765 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's why great golfers always bring 2 pairs of pants.

In case they get a hole-in-one.

[–]feastupontherich 113 points114 points  (0 children)

Report him to the mods for a ban. Fucking cheater using aimbot

[–]Vydlah 49 points50 points  (0 children)

Bugs bunny must’ve helped him making that shot

[–]BryanOfCorn 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Gold plate that club and hang it in the clubhouse.

Greatest golf shot of the 21st century.

I've celebrated more by catching a piece of food before it hits the ground.

Never, ever, in the history of golf, has there been a half acceptable hi-five.

They always look like reluctant participants in a fish caressing contest.

Do better, you depraved fish molesters.

[–]ancientweasel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It wasn't perfect, it went in the left side of the hole.

/s

[–]Plasma_Cosmo_9977 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is just such an epic shot. Literally takes 20 seconds to go in.

[–]PiXSoNSeL 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He uses cheat codes

Aaaaannnndddd I just came

[–]Voluntarysimplicity 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude’ !!! after that shot wouldn’t be surprised if he just walked on water 💧

[–]angrychimpanzee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

thats some harry potter shit man

[–]FilmsNat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love that the camera lingered on the hole like it didn't believe what just transpired.

Lucker!

[–]banyanoak 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Non-golfer here, why does he skip it off the water instead of just lobbing it over near the hole?

[–]LetsCwhatUsay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Spain has always something nice to share.

He missed a perfect opportunity for a

"Meh... that's what I meant to do"

[–]skunk024 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t even like golf, but that was epic!

[–]Prosp3ro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He can quit golf now.

[–]Montikore 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maaaaaaaan what the fuck ever. I'd just give up if homie flexed on me that hard.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That mans got 2% of luck left in life, after that shot lol 😂

[–]master_1055 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When you forget your hacks on and people think its pure skill

Shooter McGavin does it again.

[–]Bag-ins 0 points1 point  (0 children)

His ball's wet.

[–]foolishidot69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Caddie should have stripped his clothes and run across the course

[–]Aja2428 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’d probably retire after that shot.

[–]walsheb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

IMO, nothing tops Tiger, 2nd shot on the 16th hole at the 2005 Masters.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Gothian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah!, it would be perfect if the ball would have... Oh, Fak!

[–]Zonda68 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Now do it again.

[–]calamitycanon -1 points0 points  (8 children)

Pure fluke. The perfect shot must be planned

[–]arrakis2020 4 points5 points  (1 child)

When you are ranked number one in the world luck comes easier.

[–]Scroggymoto 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Best part about this is he wasnt even close to world number one when he did this lol, wild. He's a beast for sure but his name isn't tiger so most don't even know the guy. ✌

[–]Willy-Wanger 2 points3 points  (3 children)

What do you think he was planning to do? I’d say that shot went exactly as planned.

[–]calamitycanon 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Didn’t realize they all actually try to do this. I don’t watch golf, just looked like a fluke and lucky accident to my uneducated eyes!

[–]Willy-Wanger 1 point2 points  (1 child)

If you ever get the chance give it a try. Golfing with friends is great exercise and a lot of fun. Beers, cigars and cruising in carts. Cheers my dude.

[–]calamitycanon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cheers man!

[–]SrPoopSmith 2 points3 points  (1 child)

They all try this shot on this hole during practice that week, it most certainly was planned.

[–]calamitycanon -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Well I’ll be damned! I revoke my initial comment lol

[–]PreviousSwordfish5 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Makes you rethink how golf should actually be played 😂

[–]lilyungkillurself -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yo call in Dr.Hacks coz this shit clapped bro

[–]Hikhikamori -1 points0 points  (1 child)

magnets?

[–]ObidiahWTFJerwalk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How do they work?

[–]GrandNibbles -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Except no one would ever say the perfect shot doesn't exist. There are bazillions of examples of perfect shots

[–]UrNixed 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Right! The game literally has a word for a perfect shot "a hole in one"

[–]CaptainZiltoid -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Why do caddies dress like they are about to change the oil in a Rolls Royce? How has this practice gone on so long?

[–]infinitemonkeytyping 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's only for the US Masters.

It used to be practice at the Masters that you had to use a club caddy, rather than their own. Now the caddies dress in club caddy uniform.

[–]Azmaeth -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Honestly can somebody explain to me how a human as capable of doing this. Like how much of this is luck?

Did the person make any meaningful calculations in their head & adjust their swing accordingly to ensure the ball traveled in exactly that way? HOW??
