There’s a reason why chasing the little white ball is considered a warm weather sport.

A golfer in Rhode Island apparently thought it was a good idea to take a swing on a frozen lake.  As you can imagine, things didn’t go well.

A country club in Rhode Island posted the video Monday, which shows the unidentified golfer taking a mighty swing.

Not only does he miss the ball badly, but also slips and takes a painfully hard fall onto his back.   And if that wasn’t enough, the ice breaks and he takes a spill into the frigid waters.

Let’s hope he waits until spring before he decides to hit the links again.

As of Tuesday morning, the video had been watched almost 5,000 times since it was posted 17 hours ago.
