Flaming Trick Shot Goes Awesomely Wrong

Trick shots don't always go as planned. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. And then sometimes you light yourself on fire doing one. 

The guy in this (trick shot?) video from a few months ago decided it'd be a good idea to light a golf ball on fire and hit it. As you can imagine, it didn't work out as he expected. 

I'm not so sure he didn't coat the head of his club with gasoline for a cool, added effect. If so, it worked.

Regardless, no one appeared to get hurt and it made for an awesome video. Even if it wasn't really a trick shot ... at all.
