WATCH: This Swing Looks Like It Hurts

Earlier this year, we took a look at what may be the worst golf swing we’ve ever seen.

Now we are looking at the swing of Jim Furyk on steroids. Jack Van Meerbeeck, a 58-year-old Belgium native, is actually a pretty decent player despite one of the most unorthodox maneuvers you will ever see. Van Meerbeeck recently shot 80 at his home course of Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., where the Wyndham Championship is played.

“I took a lesson about eight years ago, and I thought the pro was going to have a heart attack,” Van Merbeeck told Tom Stickney of GolfDigest. “He gave me a few pointers on squaring the clubface at impact and told me to continue to enjoy the game. I love it, every swing I take.”
