When all is going well, you have a plan in your head and a golf shot goes haywire. We’ve all been through that agonizing feeling of frustration, on yourself and the club that betrayed you. And all we want to do is just scream, throw the club and tear out a piece of the ground for good measure. Well, this 102-year-old did just that. Or, at least, some of that.

Steve Elkington, winner of the 1995 PGA Championship, consistently posts clips of his friend and golf practice buddy, Dr. Lemack. The 102-year-old is an exceptional man and the many videos do justice to his spirit. Elkington has shared clips of him at the age of 96, 98, on his 100th birthday, and even working a 3-iron at 101.

Elkington posted the video and wrote, “Everyone knows golf is hard… Even Dr Lemack at 102 yrs young is still looking for the magic….” The official Twitter account of the PGA Tour recently brought up the hilarious clip again. Watch it for yourself.

The video begins with Dr. Lemack making a practice swing. He proceeds to fix his stance for his shot and hits. In a single motion, he strikes, takes the club to the front, and when he sees where the ball went, he lifts it over his head and smashes it to the ground!

Nevertheless, the fact that he can still manage such a beautiful swing at that age is truly fascinating. However, the clip went viral on social media. While some fans found it truly relatable, many cracked jokes at the expense of the athletic man. Let’s take a look at some of them.
