And this freezing-cold winter is providing a new variable to bring unpredictability and pain to golfers looking for a little risk on the links: ice.
One guy combined the Happy Gilmore approach to a golf swing with the title character’s favorite sport, skating up to the ball on the soles of his feet while attempting to smack a shot.
Merely attempting, however.
Instead of connecting, he found himself with a sore and cold backside.
This next guy, it seems, wasn’t even trying for a trick shot, but instead hoped to get his ball back on the grass in a brisk round of real-life golf. It didn’t go well either, and he might wanna get himself checked out for a concussion.

Last year yielded the ultimate ice-trick-shot fail, however, when an attempt resulted in a whiff and a cold bath.
But one legend actually managed to pull it off. His secret? Ice skates.
Sure, this one went well, but if you’re a golfer bored of the sport, please, stick to trick shots that don’t endanger your well-being. You can even still utilize ice, like this guy.
