Tiger Duffs Shot, Indian Man Surprised

This is the moment when Mail on Sunday photographer Mark Pain found himself in the line of fire at the Ryder Cup – and for a brief moment brought the mighty Tiger Woods to a juddering halt. The American world No 1 was partnering Steve Stricker and attempting to chip his third shot on the final hole of yesterday morning’s fourball against Europe’s Ian Poulter and Ross Fisher on to the green. But Woods hit the ground behind the ball and duffed the shot straight at Pain. The man from The Mail on Sunday didn’t flinch, however, and captured this extraordinary picture just before the ball hit his camera, bounced on to his chest and came to rest at his feet. Woods was furious about his blunder, but neither he nor caddie Steve Williams objected to Pain’s position. (via mailonline)

This is one of the most amazing sports photographs the world will ever see and here’s why.  First of all, the probability of capturing a moment as strange and amusing as this is close to zero.  The whole damn audience is staring at the camera.  Even Tiger is tossing an “oh fuck” expression at the lens.  Second, the turban guy with a cigar is just perfect unintentional comedy.  Is he wearing golf shoes by the way?  Who the fuck deliberately chooses to walk around a golf course all day wearing golf shoes when they’re not playing golf?  The Arabian Cheech Marin, that’s who.  Lastly, it’s pretty tough to pick out Tiger in that crowd huh?  The last time I saw that many white people surround a Tiger I was watching Jungle Book on VHS.
