Just to illustrate how far out of our world professional golfers really are, here's a European Tour player that most of you will have never heard off, showing off some of his skills, shooting a trailer for one of his sponsors.



The question - last shot, real or fake? :D

I wonder how many takes it took for each one. If he was really that good, he would be No.1 in the world. I always take video's with a grain of salt.

I'm sure they took a few takes, but I wouldn't say being good at trick shots makes you automatically good in tournament play. There are plenty of guys who make a living touring trick shot shows who couldn't make it in even the lower pro ranks.

Of all the shots, I wish I could hit the one out of the bunker into a target the size of a rubbish bin.

Even if it took 10 takes, that is very good. The misses were all probably better than I could have done in 20 tries.

Nice trick shots but that last one is faked. You can tell by the "jerky" camera in 2 spots in my opinion...

Very cool video. I would say real on the last shot, but who knows how many takes it took.

Awesome video, thanks for sharing. That guy was nuts for teeing the ball with his mouth.
