Fear, Defined: PGA Golfer Hits His Drive Directly At You, And You're On Top Of A Crane

Skyjacks and other individuals who make their living at high elevation get paid well because the fear of heights—also known as acrophobia—is far from uncommon. We're also built to avoid hard objects flying at us at high speed, which is why this clip from today's WGC-Cadillac Championship round from Doral is so terrifying.

Dustin Johnson's drive goes well right, and directly at the camera operator atop a crane several stories above the fairway. With nowhere to go, he proves his mettle and keeps the ball tracked all the way until it struck the platform and dropped into the rough. If there's a huevos grandes award, John Bodecker wins it.
