Brave or mad? Watch golfer tee off from reporter’s mouth

Matt Ginella is a journalist with the Golf Channel and, judging by this clip, is either very brave or very foolish.

Ginella allowed a golfer to take a tee shot from his mouth as he lay on the ground.

And not just any golfer - long-drive specialist Tim Burke who has a recorded swing speed of more than 150 mph.

If it went wrong, the results would not be pretty.

Luckily for Ginella it went right, and boy does he appear relieved afterwards.
