It certainly feels like these basketball halftime full-court putts seem to go in more often than not.

But one unlucky guy at a recent Baylor University basketball game is living proof that they don't all find the bottom of the cup, even if they come agonizingly close.

Baylor athletics tweeted out a video of one man's attempt at the 94-foot putt for $5,000, this one with an added wrinkle of an elevated practice putting green at the end of the court.

That slight change cost this guy big time, as his attempt came up just a roll or two short.
