Most people perform their trickshots on purpose, but the mark of a great golfer is being able to do one in your sleep.

He’d been intending to do a drive indoors with totally improper equipment, an otherwise inadvisable move that resulted in a moment of accidental genius when the ball ricocheted of a lampshade above.
