Golfer tries to make clever video, whacks himself in the legs with ball instead

Trying to shoot a cool video, golfer JJ Regan managed to almost cripple himself with a golf ball.

We can see what the lads were thinking here. Ahead of a PGA Tour Canada event called The Great Waterway Classic, three golfers (Alex Carrigan, Chris Killmer and JJ Regan) decided to shoot a jokey video so it looked like a golf ball had just flown out of an old cannon and into the sea.

It was a nice idea but unfortunately Regan’s execution nearly did him some serious damage. Using his driver, he failed to get the ball over the small wall between him and the water, causing it to rebound back at him at top speed.

Luckily for Regan it stayed low enough that it didn’t hit him in the balls, but it did smack into one leg and then the other.
