Dallas Stars' Tyler Seguin Allows Golf Pro to Hit Tee Shot off His Groin

It takes supreme confidence and a hefty plate of huevos rancheros to let someone hit a golf ball off your body.

Anyone, even a golf pro of the highest stripe, possesses a measure of human fallibility that could turn a stunt shot for charity into a messy limp to the infirmary. The bodily tee shot is a game of inches—a game Tyler Seguin was willing to play this week.

The Dallas Stars center willfully strapped on a cup and lay down in front of a man with a driver and pants co-opted from The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.

Seguin uploaded a video of the ridiculous shot, which appeared to be an old trick for the golf pro. The colorfully adorned man gave his club a casual waggle, looked downrange and wham—slammed a clean tee shot off the groin of the NHL center.

"Ooh, it tingled!" Seguin shouted, officially entering his bid for sports quote of the year.

The occasion for this harrowing stunt? The sixth annual TFP Charity Golf Classic, which Seguin had the honor of hosting Thursday.

Granted, the Stars center claimed he didn't know his emcee duties would parlay into groin-endangering stunt work.

"Didn't think this would be happening at my first golf tourney," Seguin wrote in his caption of the video. "Thank god he was a pro. Awesome day big shoutout to the 150+ people that came."

Let's give Seguin a round of applause. It takes chutzpah to put your body in such a compromising position, and even more moxie to allow the Bill Murray of golf pros to take a whack near your nethers.
