This is my fucking driver!
00:01
Hey dude, come back here!
00:03
(grumbling)
00:04
Hey, you don't think that's my driver?
00:06
I'm willing to call the fucking police about it!
00:11
Holy crap, oh my.
00:13
(laughter)
00:14
I absolutely got Shanked.
00:16
They've got cameras all over the place!
00:17
There's a camera right there, camera right there.
00:20
Look at this guy!
00:21
This guy's in camo, jeez!
00:25
I think we got him pretty good.
00:29
Three men.
00:31
One man approaches, says where's my driver, this is it.
00:34
Steals one of the clubs.
00:36
Runs.
00:37
Golf marshal tackles him.
00:38
They argue.
00:39
Golf marshal takes the club.
00:41
And I'm gonna hold court like King Solomon
00:42
from the bible and decide who gets it.
00:45
Ultimately, I'm gonna break the driver,
00:47
and we're gonna see what happens.
00:48
And then we're gonna give him this!
00:50
So it's not all fun and games on Shanked.
00:52
Sometimes you have to put your body on the line.
00:56
This is my fucking driver!
00:57
No, no, get off me!
00:59
(mumbles)
01:03
So now I'm gonna show you the good stuff.
01:05
There we go!
01:05
That's not bad, huh?
01:07
And hopefully, we will break or throw the driver.
01:10
If they're too heated, and I feel like you're gonna
01:13
get punched, I think you launch it into the trees.
01:16
Now it's nobody's!
01:18
(laughter)
01:23
(upbeat rock music)
01:26
Here we come!
01:27
He thinks that you took his driver,
01:28
you think that he took his driver.
01:30
I'll call the fucking sheriff's department.
01:32
Sounds like a little argument going on over there.
01:35
Are we doing this?
01:36
Go now, go now.
01:37
And it's your club, and it's his club.
01:39
It's everybody's club!
01:40
(bleeped out cursing)
01:42
I just heard a snap.
01:43
I was glad the decision was made for me to break it.
01:46
Oh!
01:46
Oh my God.
01:49
To break that over your knee,
01:51
whether it's new or old, it's a lot of money.
01:53
And you're just destroying it immediately.
01:55
Here, there's your driver.
01:56
There's both of you.
01:57
I quit this job.
01:58
(screaming)
02:00
Sir, you just got Shanked!
02:01
You've been Shanked!
02:03
It went fantastic.
02:04
It was a lot of fun.
02:06
These guys were, I think, hook, line, and sinker.
02:08
I can't believe you tackled him like that.
02:10
That was crazy!
02:12
This is what happens when you get Shanked.
02:13
We're gonna play 16 holes,
02:14
and now you've got a new driver to play with.
02:18
(cheering)
