Golfer Hits Amazing Shot off Fence, over Own Head, a Tree, Landing Close to Pin

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterDecember 9, 2016

Here's a shot you don't see every day.

Playing at the British Par 3 Championship earlier this summer, Matt Wheatcroft was in trouble on the Nailcote Hall Hotel course, stuck tight to a fencepost with no obvious way of playing the ball.

That is, except if he hit it directly into the fence and bounced it backwards towards the green.

Speaking in a video made on the moment, which has only just appeared online, Wheatcroft said it was his experience of crazy golf that helped him see and then execute the shot.

The plan was to crash the ball away from the green and into the fence. From there, it would bounce over his own head and a tree, and land close to the pin.

As you can see in the video above, it really couldn't have gone any better.

Spotted in the Daily Telegraph.
