"You're looking at a 10-hour round": Golfer displays UNIQUE pre-shot routine

Every so often a golf clip comes up that simply has to be shared.

Whether it's a dog driving a golf cart, an incredible hole-in-one or something that has to be seen to be believed. This latest one? We're not quite sure what category it should go in. Let's file it under interesting. 

Our protagonist is at the driving range working on his game. I mean, really working on his game. The time elapsed between address and contact is a mere 59 seconds. That's a little bit too long, some may suggest. Especially at the driving range. 

He's kitted out nicely. Got a nice black glove on, too. He's wearing golf shoes. He's ready to put in the work. But what happens in between address and the swing is something that we have never seen before.

What exactly is going on here? Only he knows. He crouches down. Hovers his right hand over the club, then practices trying to get his swing towards the right. In the end, what's impressive is that the contact sounds good when he finally makes a pass at the ball. 

Whatever works for you. This is definitely his swing. But if you get paired with him, you're looking at a long round.
