WATCH: Golfer’s Bunker Shot Spins So Much His Playing Partner Can’t Believe It

Any golfer will tell you that ripping a pitch shot and watching it grip and stop dead is one of life’s great pleasures.

Jim Herman’s bunker shot was from a distance that would see an amateur struggle. The American’s golf ball was on a string as it inexplicably came back to life after passing the hole.

If you’re obsessed with this sort of thing, you need to check out a competition they hold in Japan. This hilarious clip shows golfers competing for the coveted crown of “backspin champion” or whatever the f*** you would call the winner. Enjoy.
