Man stands on a boulder wedged 3,245 feet above a fjord and bounces a ball on a wedge

Sigurdur Hauksson, an Iceland native and avid golfer, is pretty good at bouncing a golf ball on the face of a wedge a la Tiger Woods, as we see here, but his swing at the end is rather feeble, with no weight shift.

It might have something to do with the 3,245-foot drop to the fjord below should he have made a single false step.

Hauksson did his bit atop what is known as Kjeragbolten, a boulder wedged in a crevasse in Mount Kjerag in Norway. It is a popular tourist site, but not for those afraid of heights.

“To the 19th hole!” Hauksson wrote on Instagram. “Made my heart go a little bit wild, only 989 m above the ocean (3,245ft).”
