Mark.
00:01
Morning, ladies.
00:02
Good morning. (laughs) Good morning, Logan.
00:04
Hi, I'm Blair O'Neal, and welcome back
00:05
to Sexiest Shots in Golf.
00:07
Today I'm joined by my friend
00:08
and fellow Sports Illustrated model, Kelly Rohrbach.
00:11
You're gonna need some big stones for this one.
00:13
This is called sexiest shots, not easiest.
00:15
[Blair] We're gonna show you how to skip
00:16
your golf ball across the water.
00:18
Actually, Blair's gonna show you
00:19
because I have no idea how to hit this shot.
00:22
Let's go, I'll show you how it's done.
00:23
Okay.
00:24
(energetic modern rock music)
00:30
[Blair] You like to bet on the golf course, don't you?
00:31
[Kelly] I do, actually.
00:32
Well, I've got the perfect shot for you.
00:34
So if you wanna take everyone's money,
00:36
you need this shot in your life, all right?
00:38
The first thing is you got to have a low lofted club.
00:41
So I'm using a 4 iron, you can use a 3 iron,
00:44
maybe even a hybrid, but the most important thing
00:46
about this shot is you have to hit the ball first.
00:49
If you don't hit the ball first, you are dead in the water.
00:52
(water splashes)
00:53
So... (laughs)
00:55
As far as a setup, you need to have
00:56
a little bit of an open stance.
00:58
Open the face just a little bit, and the ball's gonna be
01:01
positioned further back in your stance.
01:02
The ball is going to skip, skip on the water
01:05
and right onto the green.
01:08
Skip, skip,
01:09
and
01:10
yes.
01:11
Money on the green all day long.
01:12
That was so good.
01:14
Thank you. Wow.
01:15
All right, let's see you do it.
01:16
You got this. Okay, let's see if I can
01:17
put it inside you.
01:18
[Blair] Little punch swing, further back in the stance,
01:20
face a tad open, nice low finish.
01:24
[Kelly] Ball first.
01:26
[Blair] A little punch, yep, ball first.
01:31
(water splashes)
01:32
There we go!
01:33
Okay, I think I got it! That looks so good, yes!
01:35
I think that might be inside of you, Blair.
01:38
We are money.
01:39
(laughing)
01:43
I love doing that shot and taking people's money.
01:46
So if you can follow these tips, obviously you did,
01:51
nobody's money is safe.
01:53
You know what?
01:54
Now that we both know it, let's go find some suckers
01:56
and take their money.
01:57
Ooh, I love that, let's go.
01:58
(laughing)
