Golf pro plays (illegal) snooker shot from bunker for fun: video

Swedish tour pro Alexander Bjork had to get crafty to play his golf ball that found its way into an awkward position at the Dunhill Links Championship last week.

We’re not exactly sure if Bjork’s ball did actually finish in this spot – just outside the “Hell Bunker” at the par-5 14th hole on the Old Course at St Andrews – but here is how he played it during the practice round for a laugh.

Just so you know, don’t think about playing a golf shot like this yourself. It’s officially against the rules as you must play a shot with the head of the club – Rule 14 has all the details.
