There’s excitement around golf’s return from the COVID-19 pandemic and then there’s this.
Welcome to golf’s undeniably dangerous, utterly idiotic version of that ’80s classic ‘Spin The Bottle’.
According to Wikipedia, spin the bottle “is a kissing party game played at teenage parties comprising boys and girls. The game is popular among young teenagers. Even though it might be played occasionally by young teenagers or young adults, its popularity has declined since the 1980s.”
Well, fans of this harmless game can thank a bunch of grown men for bringing it back in vogue, albeit in a much riskier format. While the premise of their version is much like the original – stand around in a circle and take it in turns to spin the bottle until it comes to a complete stop – the consequences for who it lands on don’t involve kissing the person nearest to them. No, for these brave stupid men the “unlucky” one gets to pick up a golf club and, well, take aim at his mates as they attempt to flee the scene. Check it out:

Damn, that’s gotta hurt! We have to admit, it made us laugh but, ahem, probably best you don’t try this at home, or anywhere for the matter.
