Peter Uihlein Defies The Laws of Physics
By Torleif Sorenson on 2/28/14


Lots of men and women playing on the pro tours can hole out a bunker shot. But, as pointed out by Kyle Porter, Peter Uihlein's sand-blast on Thursday at the Honda Classic seems to defy the laws of gravity and physics. To wit:
  1. The ball landed on the green, presumably with a healthy amount of back-spin;

  2. The ball clanked off the flagstick, rebounding in the direction from which it came;

  3. Then, seemingly in defiance of gravity, the ball somehow rolls back toward the hole and falls in.

Perhaps the third hole at PGA National's Champion Course is actually a black hole. Where is Dr. Sheldon Cooper when you need him?

It rolled about 5 feet towards the cup, it had no backspin. In fact, it had forespin.

"The ball clanked off the flagstick, rebounding in the direction from which it came"
True. But it only rebounded about as far as the lip, so it may have been leaning in.

"Then, seemingly in defiance of gravity, the ball somehow rolls back toward the hole and falls in."
Actually - see 1 & 2.

The ball followed just about every law of physics.

He only defied the laws of fashion. His belt does not match the pink stripe on his shirt, nor are the light greys in his ensemble anywhere close to each other. P.U. indeed !

Was staddler and his caddie on the other side of the hole. Everything breaks towards the stands. Just ask bubba

watch Uihlein's swing in slow mo. he keeps his right foot planted on the ground while he goes through the impact zone. it doesn't sound that strange, but it's crazy when you see it in action. you have to be incredibly flexible to do that.
