World Record Golf Ball “Catch”

I don’t know what to make of this. But wanted to share nonetheless. In this video, you’ll see a 300-yard drive, a Mercedes-Benz SLS, a whole bunch of dangerous driving… and the “catch”, Enjoy!
P.S. Huh, I figured this was a Callaway or TaylorMade stunt… yet he’s hitting an R11 with a Callaway cap on. Hmm…
