#EpicFailFriday: That's nuts! Bunker shot goes awry

In this weekly Grill Room installment, we take a look at some golfers' more-forgettable moments on and off the course.

We've seen a substantial influx of golf trick-shot videos over the past year or so, and the most amazing thing to me is how all of these guys seem to nail their shots on their first try.

Evidently, these guys are so good, that I thought we may never get an answer to the age-old question, "What's the worst that can happen when one of these trick shots doesn't go as planned?"

But alas, the Internet has gifted us the answer, and we've provided it on a loop below for your viewing pleasure.


Let this be a lesson to all you aspiring trick-shot artists out there ... you might want to add "cup" to the mandatory equipment list.

You can check out the whole clip from several angles in the video below. It's well worth your 27 seconds.
