Not impressed. The ball is out of focus :wink:

The look on the face of the guy on the right of the frame with the cigar is priceless though.

Not a bad shot then - from Tiger, I mean.

"Not impressed. The ball is out of focus :wink: "

Nikon D3S Continual Autofocus is not all it's cracked up to be... :wink:

Cigarman's mum must be so proud!

By the look of his pants the poor photo man must have took a plunge
The cigar man is certainly a winner:-)

This article reminds me of how my camera almost got hit by a golf ball once. Though the quality is pretty bad, I thought I'd share the video:

Part of a school assignment I did years ago, we filmed a commercial for a golf club.

I bet the guy phoned his boss to say he was sick and couldn't make it to work so that he could watch the golf.

Since it would be televised, and just to be sure, he wore a disguise :lol:

Bet he didn't think he'd become an internet sensation!
