Video: Thomas Bjorn's ball smashes lens on $80,000 camera at British Open
We wonder will Bjorn now give a signed glove to ESPN to make up for it?
Considering just how much golf there is being played, and how many cameras there are following the players around, it is a miracle this doesn't happen more often.
In today's opening round of the British Open, Thomas Bjorn found himself a little off line and his shot from the rough to recover wasn't much better. In fact, it was so off line that it flew right down the lens of an ESPN camera.
ESPN hope that the very pricey HD camera can be fixed up. As for Bjorn, he double bogeyed the hole and that ismuch harder to repair.
