I'm Jason Day.
00:01
Today, I'm gonna control myself like
00:03
I'm in my own video game.
00:04
(electronic tones)
00:06
Holy mackererel.
00:07
Aww, bloody hell.
00:07
(energetic electronic tones)
00:13
It's the hardest thing ever, because I don't know where--
00:15
I'm not looking at the golf ball,
00:16
I am looking at a golf ball,
00:17
but I am looking at a golf ball.
00:18
I don't know where to look.
00:20
I'm trying to look for the golf ball,
00:21
because I'm usually looking down here.
00:23
[Assistant] Where am I going? This way? Yep.
00:25
This way, alright.
00:28
Alrighty.
00:29
Here's the ground.
00:31
I've got no depth perception at all.
00:34
Please hit a good shot.
00:41
Is that center there?
00:43
(golf ball strike) Oh, I topped it.
00:45
Bloody hell, you know what?
00:50
(golf ball strike)
00:51
I really didn't want to put a mark on my driver.
00:53
Why am I looking up?
00:55
(laughter) I don't know.
00:57
No, that's the wrong way.
00:58
Do I have to go change a club?
01:00
(energetic electronic tones)
01:04
No, that feels like a five.
01:05
That close to it?
01:06
Congratulations, you found it.
01:08
Oh, thank you. (laughter and clapping)
01:09
I tried to feel the loft, tried to feel the number at first,
01:11
but then tried to feel the loft.
01:13
Here we go, I got it, I got it, I got it.
01:15
What the hell, man?
01:19
Aww.
01:22
I really do wanna break a golf club right now.
01:25
Aww, please God.
01:29
Awww!
01:33
Where is the ball?
01:35
(golf ball strike) Aww, shank.
01:37
(sighs)
01:39
(golf ball strike)
01:41
[Assistant] There you go. (cheers)
01:43
I actually closed my eyes on that, so I felt pretty good.
01:46
I gotta change to a putter, eh?
01:47
Aww, sorry. Over here, over here.
01:51
(energetic electronic tones)
01:53
Oh, yeah.
01:54
Oh (short electronic tone)
01:55
Sorry, I just swore.
01:57
It's going to be a little left.
01:59
Okay. Are you just aiming it dead straight at the hole?
02:03
(remote control car whizzing by)
02:06
[Assistant] Aww, man, come on! No!
02:08
Even with that stupid beaver.
02:11
That was going in, right?
02:13
That was totally going in.
02:14
[Assistant] Looks good.
02:17
(short electronic tone) Sorry (mumbles).
02:24
I duffed it.
02:26
(cheers and applause)
02:27
Oh, I duffed it in!
02:29
Yes, even with a duff, it still goes in.
02:32
Where am I heading now?
02:35
(cheerful techno music)
02:43
(moves into energetic techno music)
02:47
Alright, where is it?
02:49
Here we go.
02:52
No, that's not it.
02:53
I don't know where to pour it, is that it?
02:59
I feel like I'm doing alright.
03:00
Where the frick is the thing?
03:05
Alright, alright, the handle, okay.
03:10
(liquid pouring)
03:13
(drinking and satisfied sigh)
03:16
Aww!
03:17
It is fun.
03:18
You know what, actually, no it is not fun.
03:20
I like to hit golf shots kind of semi-straight,
03:24
and I just had, like I said, I had no clue.
03:27
It feels like I'm a beginner trying to start golf again.
