Golfer FALLS INTO LAKE after playing recovery shot!

A video has gone viral over the weekend of a golfer falling backwards into the lake after playing a recovery shot from the reeds. Only some golf fans are calling it fake... what do you reckon?!

The golfer played his ball out of the water, then fell backwards much to the delight of his playing partners. It certainly had elements of Woody Austin on the PGA Tour, and Richard Finch on the European Tour back in the day. 




Here's a throwback to Woody Austin and Richard Finch throwing themselves into the water on Tour: 

Check out some of the comments below: 

"Haha this reminds me of Woody Austin!"

"Golfers will do anything to save dropping a shot."

"He took one for the team there."

"I'm not sure about that at all."

"Haha what a melon!"

"This is the real reason a round takes longer than 4 hours."

"This is so fake, he clearly could have kept his balance."

"Definitely fake."
