Could you tee up a ball from a beer can? John Daly can.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

A guy at the course bar was telling me that on every #17 he and his group tee up a ball off of a beer can in remembrance of one of their dear friends.

 

I was watching youtube today and came across this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAkfG-xgVCg John Daly crushing a drive off of a coke can (then drinking it of course).

 

I don't think I could do that.  But I might try with an old beater driver. c2_beer.gif

I would probably catch a lot more can than ball. a3_biggrin.gif

Unless its empty, it sounds like alchohol abuse to me.

Hah.  The impressive part is the can that Daly hit off was full and unopened.  After he cleans his ball off the top for a typical Daly monster, he picks it up, pops it open, and pours it into a glass.

 

I wouldn't risk damaging my clubs.

Here's the original during a pro-am with (in a huge misstep by the PGA organizers) Kidd Rock as a playing partner, imagine the gallery for that...

 

 

Tees it off a king can. IIRC he was fined by the PGA for being an asshat.

Haha! That second video was just a little less... elegant

Well it wasn't diet coke either...

On those (rare) occasions where I have a beer on the course I wasn't aware it was for use as a tee. This fundamentally changes things.....

This is why bottles are frowned upon at most courses.

I believe that was Kid Rock in the overalls in that vid.

 

Oh duh, never mind. I see someone already posted that. d2_doh.gif

I did it with a right handed driver flipped upside down swinging lefty on asphalt one day first try lol, it went over the rink and out into the lake well over 200yds. I wish I could hit that straight with my normal driver a1_smile.gif

Yeah, i read in Daly's autobiography that he was fined by the PGA a goodly sum of money for conduct unbecoming a professional.  That is ' busting the beer can!' A real pro would use a short can and hit it clean but big John was showing off in front of the Razorback Clam Club and had a good laugh but smashed the can and wasted the beer.  Very unbecoming a 'pro'.

Big deal...lol

 

 

 

(EDIT: Ball actually went about 210 yards and was playable haha)
