Fascinating or fake? Trick-shot artist opens champagne bottle with golf shot

June 07, 2016

You can't believe everything you see on the Internet, as we saw on Tuesday with the NFL Twitter account mistakenly announcing commissioner Roger Goodell's death. Maybe it's because of this news -- or just our general trust issues towards humanity -- that we are treating the latest viral golf-trick video with doubt:

Wouldn't the bottle break if struck that hard by a golf ball? Was the cork at least partially unscrewed? Why isn't the video in real time? The woman's flinch is a little too delayed, right? Isn't it unsafe to have a grill that close to siding?

Conversely, if it's real...holy Moses, what a shot.
