This is probably the bravest/stupidest thing you'll see today

Darren Maule is a television host in South Africa, and last week, he concocted a cunning plan. He decided to hire a stuntman and hit a golf ball directly at him from a few yards away. After trying but failing a few times, he made an adjustment and struck the decisive blow directly into the stuntman's inner thigh -- a few inches away from his strategically well-placed hand.
