Seeing the words "extreme" and "Bubba" together made me think of a boating accident.  I'm happy that was not the case.

That’s ridiculous. Looks like something one of my 30 handicap buddies swears he did one time...

Every once in a while, I say it is fun to see such a risk taker.  And, Bubba seems to have fun as well.

I feel like there was a major where someone (I want to say Lee Trevino) tried an unorthodox route on a hole, and the next day a new tree was there to keep that from happening.

 

How does he even know when it's safe to hit?

Do we know the result of the next shot?!

Did they plant more trees before the next round?
(google Lon Hinkle, for those not old enough to get the reference)

I didn't know who Lon Hinkle was, so I looked it up. Here it is if anyone's interested, save you a search.

This is why I just find the PGA Tour to be more, I don’t know, f****** amazing compared to the LPGA. Sorry ladies but come on...you will never see this on the LPGA. Never.

In their defense (LPGA), PGA players like Bubba have a lot more money to play around with. He can afford to do stuff like this and fail. Most LPGA players are barely making ends meet.

this is cool in all but if he was near the top of the leaderboard, I don't believe he would have taken the risk.

I wonder how many degrees he could've turned the clubhead before the ball hit a tree and potentially ricochet into someone.
